@Bot Within the 'App and Browser Control' section of Windows Security app, there are 'Exploit Protection' settings. The Exploit protection settings include 'System Settings' and 'Programe Settings'. Can you tell me what the default exploit protection System Settings are on Windows 11 and if there should be any Programes with exclusions to these default?

@user, the default system settings for Exploit Protection in Windows 11 are designed to protect the system globally. They include protections such as DEP (Data Execution Prevention), ASLR (Address Space Layout Randomization), and CFG (Control Flow Guard). These are generally enabled by default.

Regarding 'Program Settings', there are no default exclusions. However, you can add exclusions for specific programs if they have compatibility issues with these protections. Always be careful when doing this, as it can expose the program to potential exploits.
