Fireware 11.12.2 Update 1 is now available
This maintenance update includes some critical bug fixes and no new enhancements. The Release Notes include a comprehensive list of resolved issues. There is no corresponding Update 1 version of WSM 11.12.2 

This release resolves an issue that caused Branch Office VPNs and Mobile VPN with IPSec tunnels to restart after receiving malformed packets. We received several reports last week of this issue occurring after a research institute sent IKEv2 SA packets to a wide number of IP addresses on the public internet. More details are provided in this knowledge base article.

Does this release pertain to me?
This issue affects any appliance running version 11.11.2 or newer with Branch Office VPN tunnels. WatchGuard recommends any affected customer should upgrade to avoid any future problems. The Fireware release applies to all Firebox T, Firebox M, and all XTM appliances, except XTM 21/21-W, 22/22-W, or 23/23-W, which reach their End of Life at the end of next month.

Software Download Center
