On Thursday, Apple release an update for its AirPort Extreme wireless networking cards. The update, a 7.2 megabyte download entitled “AirPort Extreme Update 2007-002″, improves compatibility with AirPort Extreme base stations while also fixing issues when accessing third-party access points under the WEP Open System security protocol.
The update also includes a fix wherein attackers present on a wireless network could cause system crashes by sending crafted frame code to an affected system. The issue doesn’t affect the entire line of Intel-based hardware, but only the Intel Core Duo-based Mac Mini, MacBook and MacBook Pro units.
Further details about the update can be found here and the update, as usual, can be downloaded and installed via Mac OS X’s Software Update feature.
The AirPort Extreme Update 2007-002 requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 or later and an Intel-based Mac to run.
