Windows 7: MS security tool interferes with Chrome and Adobe updates

MS security tool interferes with Chrome and Adobe updates

Quote:

Microsoft has updated its security protection tools following a glitch that prevented third-party applications – including Google Chrome and Adobe Reader – from updating properly.

The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is designed to thwart a range of tricks used by malware writers to infect systems. However a recent update of the tool went awry, which meant users had to restart their systems after applying recent Adobe software patches – a potential nuisance in corporate environments in particular.

Worse still, the misfiring Microsoft tool prevented updates of Google Chrome from installing, at least in cases where multiple users on the same machine have installed the browser and the administrator account is yet to apply a security patch.

Microsoft acknowledged the conflict, explained in more depth in an advisory here, and updated its tool.

In its own advisory, Google said EMET covers security functionality already bundled with Chrome, arguing it offers benefits only in guarding against exploits against legacy applications. ®
