DSM 6.1.3-15152 Update 5 is Released

Time to Update on clock faceSynology released DSM 6.1.3–15152 Update 5 on September 25, 2017 which contains two bluetooth related security updates, in addition to fixing six other issues. If you don’t have a bluetooth dongle on your NAS the security vulnerabilities don’t affect you.

One of the fixes (#5 listed below) could impact you if QuickConnect is enabled since updates may not be verified. This is mitigated by the requirement that your update process would need to be re-directed to a malicious update server.

This update will immediately reboot the NAS when it is applied.

I have applied it to a DS1815+, DS716+, DS415+ and a DS1511+ without having any issues. The following fixes are included in the update according to Synology.
