Software UpdateApple has posted AirPort Update 2006-001 for Mac OS X v10.4.7 and Security Update 2006-005 for Mac OS X 10.4.7 and 10.3.9. The update is recommended for all users and improves the security of AirPort.

According to MacWorld, the update fixes vulnerabilities found in the company’s wireless drivers.


The internal audit came as a result of claims by a senior researcher at SecureWorks that said he had revealed a vulnerability in Apple’s MacBook wireless software driver that would allow him to take control of the machine. SecureWorks later clarified its position and said it had used a third-party driver and not Apple’s driver.
