Rufus 4.2 final

The new version of Rufus, 4.2 final, was released today. The new version brings several notable changes, improvements and fixes. For example, the app can warn users about revoked UEFI bootloaders.

This feature is related to changes to Windows Boot Manager that will cause certain media to stop booting after Q1 2024 (find more information at official announcement).


The update also adds detection and warning against UEFI revoked bootloaders. The Secure Boot Forbidden Signature Database or Secure Boot DBX from Microsoft is basically a block list for UEFI executables that have been found to be dangerous.

The company he published same to you instructions on how to block vulnerable Windows boot managers using WDAC UEFI locking.

Εκτός από αυτές τις αλλαγές, η νέα έκδοση φέρνει επίσης υποστήριξη για το ZIP64, κάτι που σημαίνει ότι οι χρήστες θα μπορούν πλέον να εξάγουν εικόνες .zip που είναι μεγαλύτερες από 4 .

It will also be possible to add or restore disks as compressed Virtual Hard Disk v2 (VHDX) images, as well as experimental support for Full Flash Update (FFU) images.

Το FFU βασίζεται σε sectors αντί των αρχείων WIM (Windows Imaging format), που σημαίνει ότι η ανάπτυξη του FFU θα είναι ταχύτερη, αν και θα έχετε μεγαλύτερα μεγέθη αρχείων ως αποτέλεσμα.
