Apple has shipped a fresh update for its wireless base station, AirPort Extreme Update 2007-002.

The 6.5MB update is recommended for all Intel-based Macs and improves compatibility with AirPort Extreme base stations and networks, the company said.

It improves compatibility for the MacBook Core 2 Duo and the MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo when using certain third-party access points configured to use WEP Open System security.

The security patch also includes the content from the AirPort Extreme Update 2007-001, and addresses a security issue in which malicious attackers could cause system crashes over wireless networks.
