Netgear NAS 6.9.0 firmware status of fix

Post by gregransom » Nov 29, 2017 12:10 am


We are using several Netgear NAS units for backup repositories and have halted updating the firmware on these units after reading about the issue with firmware 6.9.0 and the Veeam backups failing due to Netgear poorly implementing these features:
advanced file system control (FSCTL_DUPLICATE_EXTENTS_TO_FILE).

But they did not implement (FSCTL_SET_INTEGRITY_INFORMATION).

As security is important we are keen on applying firmware patches to fix security issues.

I wanted to know if Veeam Suport have had any updates about this issue either from customers or Netgear about a fixed firmware from Netgear?
