EMET Event Logs Not Being Generated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am doing proof of concept testing and I am running into a lot of scenarios where EMET blocks an exploit attempts but does not generate a log or notification. For example CVE-2015-5119. I can compromise a vulnerable test machine no problem. When I apply EMET to IE the exploit is stopped (application crashes) but I get no event. I have been unable to generate an EMET event for IE (flash plugin) or Java so far this way. The only way that I get an EMET notification is for when I have it protecting another application like notepad or audioconverter. I have also tried CVE-2012-4969 and CVE-2011-3544 which is a java exploit and EMET mitigates it but not message or Event log. The vulnerable system running EMET is Windows 7 SP1 with IE 8. I have tried both EMET 5.2 and 5.5. Any thoughts?

    Thanks!
