Intel Fixes Centrino Security

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:27 pm

Intel has updated the software behind its Centrino chip bundle to fix three security vulnerabilities that, in one case, could allow an attacker to execute code remotely on a laptop.

The chip maker on July 28 posted a trio of updates for its Intel/PRO Wireless Network Connection wireless modules.

The Wi-Fi modules, which allow notebooks to connect to 802.11 wireless networks, are part of the chip maker’s Centrino chip bundle, which it has offered for notebook PCs since 2003.
