Firmware Update für Airport Extreme & Time Capsule

Apple hat heute Sicherheitsupdates für seine Router AirPort Extreme und Time Capsule, welche den WiFi-Standard 802.11ac unterstützen, veröffentlicht. Auch wenn sich diese Geräte schon einige Zeit nicht mehr im Verkauf befinden, ist es erfreulich, dass Apple sich noch um diese kümmert. Mit diesem Update werden einige Sicherheitslücken geschlossen, ein zeitnahes Update wird daher empfohlen.
