Microsoft Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit
Easily access and tweak the latest Windows security technologies with this clever tool

The lengthily-named Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit is a powerful tool that blocks many exploits and provides easy control over a number of Windows security features, including Structured Exception Handler Overwrite Protection (SEHOP), Address Space Layout Randomisation (ASLR) and Data Execution Prevention (DEP).

No more hunting for the right applet or Registry key to tweak your settings, then - here they're all available at a glance, and you can set up everything just as you'd like in seconds.

You can also configure your system with several "pseudo-mitigations", new techniques that may make it harder for even some 0-day malware to infect your PC. (These have technical names like "Heapspray allocation" and "Export Address Table Access Filtering", but you don't need to worry about the low-level details - for the most part, they just work.)

Version 5.5 brings these improvements:

  • Windows 10 compatibility
  • Improved configuration of various mitigations via GPO
  • Improved writing of the mitigations to the registry, making it easier to leverage existing tools to manage EMET mitigations via GPO
  • EAF/EAF+ perf improvements
  • Untrusted font mitigation for Windows 10
Verdict:

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit blocks some common exploits, and makes it easier to configure various Windows security technologies.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.19

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
