Mac UpdateIf you’re reading this on an Apple device, sit up and pay attention. A rare security patch has been released by Apple that you need to install right now to protect your systems from hackers.

Whether you’re running Yosemite, Mavericks, or Mountain Lion OS X systems, you may be vulnerable to a recently discovered security flaw that would allow an unauthorized user to tap into your operating system and wreak havoc with “arbitrary code.” You could lose access to your most important applications and files, and find your computer hijacked out of your control.

Mac users are often unused to dealing with major security threats, so you may not know what to do. Don’t worry, Apple has already released a security patch to fix the vulnerability. The security update has been applied for OS X Yosemite v10.10.1, OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5, and OS X Mavericks v10.9.5.

Many Macs are set to automatically install updates, and if that’s the case for you, breathe easy: the work is already done. If not, you’ll need to go initiate an update yourself right away to patch this threat.

It’s important to remember that while Macs and other Apple devices are well-designed and less likely to contract malware or other major security issues, they are not invincible. Your Mac can still be infected by malware, taken over by hackers, or have any other number of security threats on it.
