I have to agree with @dswv42 100% here. I’ve had a look over the detials on the vulnerability and then also compared this to what I can see on my EX4100 and can clearly still see the trademarks of the vulnerability being there. This is definitely something WD should address ASAP and patch. It is very, very disappointing to see that this was brought to the attention of WD over 6 months ago and not all actions have been corrected prior to disclosure. How long is needed to patch these bugs ?
In light of this and the other issues I have had with my EX4100 kernel panicing constantly, I am seriously thinking of looking for another NAS. The only thing holding me back really is that I don’t have another NAS with sufficient storage on it to hold the contents of this one temporarily, while I reclaim the disks in a new NAS.
I do hope WD does shape up but very much losing faith over the half hearted responses to genuine security and performance issues of the devices.
