EMET is a free tool to mitigate software exploits on Windows systems. Typically, EMET protects exposed processes like your web browser including your favorite browser plugins (e.g. flash player). EMET deploys various countermeasures to make exploitation more difficult for an attacker. In the past, there has been some work published on how to bypass or even disable EMET. This post presents another fairly simple way on how to bypass EMET 5.5 Memory Protection checks using the VirtualAlloc function.
