As of Friday, Apple released a software update for the AirPort Extreme wireless networking card for the company’s current Intel-based Macintosh computers.
The update repairs an issue discovered by the Month of Apple Bugs project that could crash a wireless network which could be triggered by the way the software handled wireless frames and how this could be exploited by an outside party.
The bug only affects certain models of the current Intel-based hardware, namely the Core Duo version of the Mac Mini as well as the MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops.
The update is a 7.4 megabyte download available through the Software Update feature that requires Mac OS X 10.4.8 to install and a 6.5 megabyte download available through Apple’s Software Updates page.
If you’ve heard anything about this or have had positive or negative experiences with the update, let us know.
