2. Apple Issues Critical New Security Patches

A recently discovered Apple exploit made it possible for devices to be infected with spyware without any user action. Apple has since issued a patch to fix the problem, and while the exploit was unlikely to target everyday people, it's recommended you install the new patch as soon as possible. Woo, security!
