Bron: Rufus

Rufus logo (75 pix)Versie 2.1 van Rufus is uitgekomen. Rufus is een Windows-programma waarmee zelfstartende usb-sticks kunnen worden gemaakt. Handig bijvoorbeeld om een besturingssysteem te installeren, wat sneller gaat vanaf een usb-stick dan van een cd of dvd, om het bios bij te werken of om een systeem te benaderen dat niet meer wil starten. Er is overigens een groot aantal tooltjes waarmee dit gedaan kan worden, maar Rufus beweert een van de snelste in zijn soort te zijn. In deze release zijn de volgende veranderingen en verbeteringen aangebracht:

Changes in version 2.1
  • Add 32 bit support for UEFI:NTFS boot
  • Add standalone UEFI:NTFS boot installation, in advanced mode
  • Add Vietnamese translation
  • Disable support for ISOs that hide their GRUB version (looking at you Kaspersky!)
  • Fix broken Windows UEFI installation when using GPT/NTFS (#461)
  • Fix creation of 32 bit UEFI Windows 10 installation flash drives (#462)
  • Other improvements (Notify when no update is available on manual check, add label for UEFI:NTFS partition, etc.)

Als ik deze download zegt mijn virusscanner dat de rufus.exe naar Internet wil verbinden op poort 137 (NetBIOS ?). Waarom zou dat nodig zijn?
[Disclaimer: I am the author of Rufus]

Please never be afraid to open an issue in the github issue tracker if you think there is an issue. Sadly I don't speak Dutch, but I'll do my best to address them.

Now, Rufus only connects to the internet, if the user chooses so, to check for updates, and will do so through HTTP (port 80). There is nothing in the code that makes it connect to port 137. However, if you try to open an ISO, Rufus will use the regular file selection dialog that will try to list network drives, and I believe NetBIOS is what Windows uses to query network drives.

It is also possible that Windows will try to connect to the internet when it checks the validity of the code signing certificate (but I don't expect NetBIOS to be used to do that, unless Windows first searches for the certificate revocation server on the local network and then on the internet).

I have checked with WireShark that the executable I put online (and which is digitally signed) does not deliberatly connect to port 137 (and after multiple tries, I definitely saw no evidence of that in WireShark), so I would like to know:

- What VirusScanner are you using?
- Can you please check the digital signature of the Rufus executable you downloaded (right click -> Properties -> Digital Signatures). It should say "Akeo Consultring
- Can you please download and run WireShark and capture the packets you get when launching Rufus.

As the application author, I do my best to ensure that there isn't any malware or unwanted behaviour in the Rufus executable, so, if the digital signature checks out, I do not believe that your connection to port 137 originated from Rufus. Also, in case you don't trust the executable I put online, you can always recompile your own Rufus executable from its github source (it's very easy to do using Visual Studio 2013 Community edition, which is free). As the Rufus source is very public, malicious behaviour such as unwanted connections, should be easy to detect.
Thanks for the quick reply. At the moment I unfortunately cannot reproduce it anymore.

If I remember correctly it happened after the following:
When I clicked the icon to open an ISO a window opens to select an ISO. Either after closing this window (without selecting an ISO) or during the opening of this window my virusscanner (Webroot) opened a window with: "rufus.exe is trying to connect to the Internet over port 137".

Maybe Webroot has mistakingly called a "Network connecting attempt" an attempt to connect the Internet? I don't know.

[Edit]
The digital signature is the one you mention by-the-way. I use Win7SP1x64.
But I think now it is a glitch in Webroot.
[/Edit]

By the way, this is a very great tool! My only intention was to mention an observation I made!

Thanks for the reply.

Is it possible that you have a shared folder connected to the cloud, which might explain the internet connection when browsing for a file?

From what you report, the connection is likely to come from the File Selection dialog, and Rufus doesn't really control the actions Windows takes to access the default shared folders you may have. The scanner will of course report that Rufus is the application trying to connect, because that's the one you opened the File Explorer with, but I'm going to guess that another application trying to open a File Selection dialog might have this issue as well.

Also, please bear in mind that, since Rufus runs as administrator, it may try to mount shared folders that are defined for the admin user rather than the regular user (which is actually why, if you run Rufus, you will usually not see the default shared folders you have defined as your regular Windows user).

For the record, I ran WireShark on my machine when selecting an ISO in Rufus, and saw nothing out of the ordinary.

And no worries about providing feedback, even if it appears to imply that Rufus could be doing something malicious... :)
There's always a possibility that my development machine could have been compromised, so it's worth double checking that this isn't the case.
Well, I have some mapped network shares but nothing cloud related. I used to have google drive but not anymore. I will keep using the application, no worries :).
Rufus is best snel. Sneller dan win7 tool.
Mijn voorkeur gaat toch echt uit naar Easy2Boot (E2B)

Deze tool werkt in windows en linux, maar heeft een veel breder spectrum aan mogelijkheden.

Geef mij maar Yumi, kun je ook nog meerdere bootable isos tegelijk op zetten.

[edit] Bovendien blijft USB in feite de bottleneck...dat ze wellicht sneller zijn dan windows 7 usb tool vind ik niet zo heel vreemd, maar anders dan dat.........

Tja ze hebben beide hun eigen handige functies... Yumi de multiboot, Rufus UEFI support.

Combinatie van beide kan ook, check SARDU multiboot creator
Dat is echt super, thanks for sharing!
Ondersteunt Yumi UEFI support? zoals '' Partition scheme and target system type '' MBR?
Bij Yumi kun je niet instellen de "Partition scheme and target system type '', Zodat je bijvb verschillende MBR kunt selecteren?

Op dit item kan niet meer gereageerd worden.
