This talk will present a new disarming flaw that can be used to prevent all anti-ROP checks in EMET 5.5x from ever being performed. The disarming condition is caused by the fact that references to the read-only CONFIG_STRUCT are always retrieved from the process heap (which has a PAGE_READWRITE protection). This is obfuscated by the usage of DecodePointer throughout EMET.
