Description

According to the firmware version collected via SNMP, the remote AirPort Extreme Base Station / AirPort Express Base Station / Apple Time Capsule reportedly does not properly parse small frames with incorrect lengths. An associated client might be able to leverage this vulnerability to cause a termination of the base station system.
