Is there a list of security issues the firmware patched? I can't find it anywhere.

this firmware was released before that vulnerability you linked was made public. he's asking what the 1.0.9.12 security vulnerabilities were, because there was no advisory posted for it.

The only description to the firmware update was "fixes security issues". Doesn't give me much to work with.

How is it that Netgear releases these firmware without fully testing them?
