Rust

Overview

Rust is a software program developed by Facepunch Studios. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The primary executable is named rust.exe. The setup package generally installs about 83 files and is usually about 970.67 MB (1,017,823,168 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 10 and Windows 7 (SP1). While about 57% of users of Rust come from the United States, it is also popular in United Kingdom and France.
