@ddmarshall ,

The EMET describes covering SA 41340 :-

To your knowledge will it apply to cover this Flash related problem described here ??

Neither Adobe or Microsoft have suggested using EMET to mitigate this vulnerability so far. I don't know if this is because it is not effective or the possibility of unwanted side effects is too great. I guess you would have to apply it to the browsers rather than the plugins and, with the large number of plugins available, some are bound to cause problems.
