In our last blog post of 2021, Corey shared 5 cybersecurity New Year's resolutions. Now is a great time to put one of those into practice: update to the latest version of Fireware!
WatchGuard has posted new maintenance updates for Fireware 12.7.2 and earlier branches, 12.5.9 and 12.1.3. 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 include fixes to resolve internally detected security issues that were found by our engineers.
Do these releases affect me?
Fireware 12.7.2 Update 1 (Release Notes) is available for:
- T Series: T20, T40, T55, T70, and T80
- M Series: M270, M290, M370, M390, M400, M440, M470, M500, M570, M590, M670, M690, M4600, M5600, M4800, and M5800

WatchGuard has also released Fireware 12.5.9 Update 1 (Release Notes) for:

How to upgrade
Firmware upgrades are included at no charge with active WatchGuard support subscriptions. The easiest approach is to use WatchGuard Cloud to schedule upgrades for one or many systems. HA Cluster pairs are now supported for upgrade from WatchGuard Cloud too. You can also upgrade individual systems directly from within the WebUI. Admins may also download the applicable packages from the WatchGuard Software Download Center.
