Microsoft adjusts server configuration to prevent RUFUS software from downloading Windows image
This week, the author of the image-burning tool RUFUS reported that Microsoft adjusted the server download configuration to prevent the download of Windows 8-11 images through scripts. The tool uses the FIDO script to obtain the image file from the Microsoft server, so the user does not need to download the image in advance and prepare the U disk to start burning.
After Microsoft adjusted the server, some users found that there were errors in downloading, such as the inability to retrieve the schema from the server, which caused users to be unable to use it normally. After investigation, the original author found that the script did not work after Microsoft adjusted the server, and in the discussion among netizens, it was even suspected that Microsoft deliberately blocked the relevant script.
In the discussion, a famous developer found that Microsoft seems to be adjusting server security measures, which may be used to prevent cross-site access to avoid server weaknesses. After testing and adjusting the source, you can get the list and download it again through the relevant commands, which proves that this is just a small change caused by Microsoft’s adjustment of the server.
