Generally speaking, people say that Apple computers are safer from hackers and viruses than Windows-based PCs, not only because they aren’t targeted as often, but also because of the supposedly “superior” measures that Macs take to prevent security breaches. Apple wants to make sure that owners of Intel Macs are adequately protected, issuing a security update for the AirPort Extreme.

The free update is “recommended for all Intel-based Macs and provides compatibility with AirPort Extreme base stations and networks.” It’s only 6.5MB — not much bigger than a standard-length MP3 file — but it’ll fix “a vulnerability that affects both the server and client versions of Mac OS X.” Interestingly, they say that Core 2 Duo equipped machines are not affected, whereas the Core Duo versions of the Mac mini, MacBook, and MacBook Pro are.
