Apple Updates AirPort Devices and Fixes Vulnerabilities

Posted on December 17th, 2010 by

Apple has issued updates for AirPort devices – its AirPort Base Station and Time Capsule – patching several vulnerabilities in the software used to run these devices. Five vulnerabilities are fixed, four of which could result in denial of service or could lead to device restart, and one that could allow malicious users to access an FTP server if port-mapping is used.

The 12.3 MB update to AirPort is available via Software Update, or by download here. After installing the new version of AirPort Utility, users should run that application to apply the firmware updates to their AirPort devices.

Full information about this update is available here.
