EMET futures releases RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I would like to know if futures versions of EMET will be available after the 5.5 (which support expires on January 2017) ?

    The goal of my question is to answer properly to my customer.

    Thank's a lot.

  • EMET doesn't look like a high-priority project. Given the lack of replies by MS personnel on this forum on any recent topic, and MS determination to force users into Win 10,  I'd say EMET's days are numbered. Just look at the post announcing version 5.5 on the Microsoft Security Research and Defense blog: half of it is a Win 10 advertisement saying why EMET is unnecessary in Win 10.

    As part of the push for Win 10, support for Win 7 is given low-priority.  And that seems to include software that benefits older operating systems the most.  Like EMET.  Microsoft doesn't want to give you any incentive or encouragement to stay on Win 7.

    Maybe we'll see version 6.  But I highly doubt we'll see version 7.
