Yesterday, news broke that cybersecurity researchers had found two major security flaws in microprocessors that allow hackers to access your passwords, banking details and other private information.

Nicknamed Meltdown and Spectre, the bugs are thought to affect almost every computer in the world, including Apple devices. In a statement, the company has confirmed that "all Mac systems and iOS devices are affected" by the security flaw.

According to Apple, "there are no known exploits impacting customers at this time," meaning that the company is not aware of any instances where hackers have utilized this bug to steal information.

To stay safe, Apple suggests to only download from trusted sources on the App Store because hackers will need "a malicious app to be loaded on your Mac or iOS device" to take advantage of the bug. The company has also released software updates for MacOS (10.13.2), iOS (11.2), and tvOS (11.2) to address the issue, with an update for Safari currently in development.
