Apple mends Heartbleed security bug in its latest WiFi routers

Apple has been lucky enough to avoid the majority of the Heartbleed security flaw. However, they are not completely immune to its advances. Apple have just updated their most recent AirPort Extreme and Time Capsule WiFi routers to fix a Heartbleed-related vulnerability that pops-up when you’re either using Back to My Mac remote access or sending diagnostics.

The flaw itself wouldn’t let people steal your credentials but they could launch man-in-the-middle attacks through it, granting them access to login pages on the router and your computers, not something you’d want.
