Attack code bypasses Microsoft zero-day protection software

Researchers say they have developed malicious code which is able to bypass Microsoft's zero-day protection software, EMET.
The Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit (EMET) is free software developed by the Redmond giant which is designed to protect user and enterprise systems from a number of vulnerabilities and exploits. Standard, basic protection -- certainly not perfect, but no software is -- but good enough for a number of older attacks and flaws.
However, exploit code developed by researchers at Bromium Labs (.pdf) circumvents a number of protections available within EMET, which means that hackers could also do the same in order to install malware or malicious code on to an unsuspecting user's computer.
