    After previously stating it was dropping support for EMET in July 2018, Microsoft announced yesterday plans to embed its vaunted EMET security toolkit in the Windows 10 kernel during the operating system's major update, scheduled for October-November 2017.

    Microsoft says it turned on its original plan after receiving feedback from experts and the Windows community, all of which was positive towards EMET.

    The love for EMET is justifiable and easy to understand. EMET, which stands for Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit, is a standalone application that users can install and bolster the defenses of their Windows operating systems.

    Many users install EMET as a complimentary app on top of antivirus software, while others use it as a poor man's antivirus.
