Apple updates WiFi routers to fix Heartbleed security bug

The Heartbleed security flaw has been affecting many users and Apple had been avoiding its presence largely considering it an unharmful threat but as it appears, the apple products are not entirely safe or rather immune from this new bug. And this explains why the company's recent efforts have been directed towards finding a fix for this Heartbleed bug.

The most recent AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule WiFi routers have been updated by Apple in order to fix a Heartbleed-related vulnerability which has the chance of emerging when you are either using Back to My Mac remote access or sending diagnostics. This flaw has been there since quite some time and previously it wasnt considered too dangerous because it won't let evildoers steal your credentials but another threat shortly followed that they could launch man-in-the-middle attacks that grant access to login pages on both the router and your computers and this poses a dangerous threat.

There is nothing to worry about if you are one of the users of the oder AirPort but all other users who have been using Apple's latest networking gear will want to patch up as soon as possible.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
