It's likely that Apple would be able to patch this quickly, as their September update covered a general category of malformed frames.
Because Apple was an early adopter of 802.11g, and because it's eschewed the proprietary and odd extensions to 802.11g that have appeared in intervening years--they adopted the more generally compatible improvements--they're ideally poised to make the leap from AirPort Extreme to AirPort FreakingFast or whatever super-duper name they'll assign to it.
My expectation is that Apple will announce the new technology at or before WWDC this August because the final draft of the standard should be finished or close to it before then, and at least four chipmakers will have been producing draft chipsets for months and worked out the bugs.

  AirPort - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
AirPort is a local area wireless networking system from Apple Computer based on the IEEE 802.11b standard (also known as Wi-Fi) and certified as compatible with other 802.11b devices.
AirPort debuted on July 21, 1999 at the Macworld Expo in New York City with Steve Jobs picking up an iBook supposedly to give the cameraman a better shot as he surfed the Web—the applause quickly built as people realized there were no wires.
It was introduced by Apple on June 7, 2004 and includes an analog/optical audio mini-jack output, a USB port for remote printing, and a single Ethernet port.

 802.11 Wireless Network (Airport) Security
Unfortunately a huge infrastructure has grown up around 802.11 and large numbers of modems are in use, including the Apple Airport line.
In addition to the threats detailed in the Shamir and BGW papers, there is another problem with Airport security: Apple's Airport software generates the network key from a password or passphrase.
Airport has limited range, so by careful placement of the base stations you may be able to minimize the areas outside your building where an attacker can receive a strong signal.

 "Open Node in a Bag": Adapting the Apple Airport for external long-range wireless antennas
Apple's Airport wireless base station is a handy device that is a well-designed, solid piece of equipment that also looks good.
As the Airport is a very robust unit, this makes it ideal, with a set of home-made antenna attachments, for the wireless network engineer needing to go on-site to install a wireless network for various applications.
Note: the unit we are adapting here is the second generation, "snow-white" Apple Airport base station, which uses the 802.11b standard, and not the new (at the time of writing) Apple Airport Extreme model, which uses the 802.11g standard for a network speed of 54Mb/s.

 Think Secret - Apple prepping new AirPort card for Mac Pros
Apple's just-announced Mac Pro features a new AirPort wireless networking card that will seemingly be distinguished from its AirPort and AirPort Extreme predecessors by a new moniker: AirPort Express.
Apple's Tech Specs Web pages for the Intel iMac and MacBook Pro touted 802.11a/b/g compatibility when those systems were first introduced, but the pages were soon changed to list only 802.11g, although 802.11a/b/g is part of the Centrino Duo platform those systems employ.
Apple products blazed the trail of both the 802.11b and 802.11g protocols, adding credence to that prediction, although final-spec 802.11n products are not expected on the market until mid-2007.

 Kernel Fun: MoKB starts: MOKB-01-11-2006 - Apple Airport 802.11 Probe Response Kernel Memory Corruption
The Apple Airport driver provided with Orinoco-based Airport cards (1999-2003 PowerBooks, iMacs) is vulnerable to a remote memory corruption flaw.
With all the hype and buzz about the now infamous Apple wireless device driver bugs (brought to attention at Black Hat, by Johnny Cache and David Maynor, covered up and FUD'ed by others), hopefully this will bring some light (better said, proof) about the existence of such flaws in the Airport device drivers.
