Rufus: 2 unspecified vulnerabilities hinted-at

Stefan Kanthak has submitted a bug against Pete Batard’s Rufus, a Win32 GDI tool that helps create USB thumbdrives. Rufus is — these days — somewhat of a rarity, an open source tool that is a native Win32 GDI GUI C application. These days, most open source GUI tools are Qt or GTK. Even Microsoft has basically given up on Win32. Old School Windows tool. 🙂

I wish Stefan was less of an <EXPLETIVE> in how he reported it.

Pete has been writing EFI-centric Free Software for a long time, not many people can write UEFI file system drivers and Win32 GDI GUI applications. Thanks for creating all these tools for people, Pete!
