Since returning to the company last July, CTO Marc Maiffret (renowned Microsoft vulnerability expert) will release on May 5 a research report demonstrating how vulnerabilities, including Zero Days, can be mitigated without patches. In the report, Marc lays out several free and easy-to-perform tweaks that would will render most attacks futile.
