Three Synology Package Updates This Week

by Ray Newbery in


Synology updated three of it’s popular packages this past week. Audio Station, Download Station and Video Station all got relatively minor updates.

Audio Station does contain a security update but it is relatively benign unless your Synology is readily accessible from the web. It’s always good to plug security vulnerabilities, even benign ones, before someone figures out how to further exploit them. But unless you’re using a new Apple TV or have been bitten by one of the patched bugs in Download Station there’s no rush to install these updates.

I did installed all three on a DS212+ without any issues. I installed and used Audio Station on a DS212+ and a DS214play without any problems.
