DiskStation Manager 5.2 (DSM 5.2) has only been out a few days but they already released an update. DSM 5.2 Update 1 has been released.

The documented changes include:

Fixed Issues

  1. Fixed an issue where users could fail to join domain when the domain admin account contains specific characters.
  2. Improved the compatibility with USB devices.
  3. Fixed a security vulnerability to prevent cross-site scripting attacks (XSS).
  4. Upgraded PHP to 5.5.25 to address multiple security vulnerabilities (CVE-2006-7243, CVE-2015-4021, CVE-2015-4022, CVE-2015-4024, CVE-2015-4025, CVE-2015-4026).
  5. Improved the compatibility with 3rd party DTV applications.
  6. Fixed an issue where SSD cache volume information may not be displayed correctly in Resource Monitor.
  7. Fixed an issue where users with guest accounts would be unable to create new files or folders via SMB protocol.

I haven’t encountered any of these issues in the short time I’ve been using DSM 5.2. I will be setting up a SSD cache in a week or so and the security fixes are always welcome so I immediately applied the update.

I applied the update to a DS1815+, DS415+ and DS212+ Synology NAS without having a problem. The update only took a couple of minutes but it did require a NAS reboot.
