ARLINGTON, Va. -- Black Hat DC -- Remember the Apple wireless flap after last year's Black Hat in Las Vegas? Well, one of the researchers in the eye of the storm will finally tell "all" publicly here today in his briefing at Black Hat DC. (See Notebooks Vulnerable to Wireless Attack.)

David Maynor, CTO of Errata Security and a former researcher with SecureWorks, says he will tell attendees here during his Device Drivers 2.0 presentation that he and fellow researcher Jon Ellch did provide Apple with information on bugs in its wireless device driver applications after their Black Hat talk. "We did indeed provide information to Apple," Maynor says. "We did point them to bugs and faults in their [device driver applications]."

Maynor says he not only shared this information with Apple, including packet captures, but he also helped the company build a tool to detect the flaws itself.
