New Fireware update releases
WatchGuard has posted new maintenance updates for Fireware 12.7 and earlier branches, 12.5.7 and 12.1.3. The new releases address some issues that have been fixed since the original 12.7 release. See details in the Release Notes. WatchGuard is moving away from providing customer specific (CSP) builds, and we prefer to issue generally available Update releases that are provided to all for download.
These releases also include fixes to resolve internally detected security issues. These issues were found by our engineers, and not actively found in the wild. For the sake of not guiding potential threat actors toward finding and exploiting these internally discovered issues, we are not sharing technical details about these flaws.
