Hello, I would like to ask... There will be no ZoneDirector FW 9.9.0.0 with KRACK update?

from this Ruckus KRACK support page:

https://support.ruckuswireless.com/krack-ruckus-wireless-support-resource-center?_ga=2.135951091.379...

would suggest not.

You will have to consider upgrading to 9.10 to get a KRACK secured release.

I saw this. And that's why I'm asking. I would like to get a confirmation of this, because I also got an email from Ruckus, where was stated "You and your customers will receive software updates, regardless of support contract status.". I have 9.9.0.0 in quite a lot of sites and there is no support contract on those ZDs anymore...

I was a little surprised by that statement as it tacitly implies that Ruckus would backward port a KRACK fix into all versions of ZD firmware. That could involve a very large number (100+ ?) of firmware images stretching back many years. That's a shedload of regression testing.

I expected that only the last issued/latest firmware for EOL products would receive a refresh with fix.
Perhaps others will appear over the next few weeks/months.

Michael B: if you are reading, care to comment on older firmware with KRACK fix?
