SonicWall Releases Second Set of February Firmware Patches

The latest patches, for its SMA 100 series products, comes less than three weeks after an updates to patch a zero-day vulnerability.

Network security firm SonicWall today released a new set of firmware patches for its SMA 100 series products, which provide workers with remote access to internal resources. 

The release is an update to a previous alert from Feb. 3, in which the firm warned that a remote attacker could exploit a vulnerability in versions of the products' SMA 10 code prior to 10.2.0.5-29sv to take control of an affected system. The company says even organizations that have applied the firmware update still need to upgrade to SMA 10.2.0.6-32sv.
