Intel patches Centrino WiFi vulnerability
Is it just us, or is it strangely coincidental to that the day after a pair of hackers announce their ability to compromise certain computers with certain wireless cards and drivers, Intel busts out a driver update for their Centrino WiFi chips. Maybe we're just reading too much into this. In any case, Intel has fessed up to security vulnerabilities in their Centrino systems "which could potentially lead to remote code execution and system control." They've got some new drivers on their website, but advise users to check with their laptop manufacturer for any device-specific updates. No word yet from Apple on the MacBook hackability.
