In this video we do a walk thru on how to update Ubiquiti Unifi Access Points manually when upgrading from the wireless controller fails. We encountered this issue when we applied update 5.5.20 to the Wireless controller.

Tutorial covers downloading the upgrade locally to the access point and executing the necessary commands to trigger the update from the access point SSH console.

It is believed that upgrading all devices worldwide will take a few years since different manufacturers place different priorities on upgrading old products versus new products coming up to the market.

This vulnerability has taken war-driving to a whole new level since just driving by the vulnerable device or network attackers can gain access without needing to break any passwords or encryption.
