Evaluating the anti-exploit detection feature

The anti-exploit detection feature blocks malicious content from exploiting vulnerabilities in applications. To test or verify this feature, you can use the Metasploit Framework module. This module requires Windows 7 x86, Firefox, and Adobe Flash Player.

Consider running the exploit with and without enabling the anti-exploit detection feature in FortiClient. FortiClient blocks such an exploit and displays a bubble message in FortiTray to notify the endpoint user.

In newer product versions, vendors resolve most publicly announced exploits. The FortiClient Vulnerability Scan feature can identify, report, and apply patches for supported applications. See Vulnerability Scan.
