Update your Apple products
Please update your Apple products immediately to patch exploitable bugs.
Apple released patches for numerous security holes in its OS X and iOS operating systems. These vulnerabilities could allow a hacker to infect your device with a malicious TIFF (an image file format like a JPG or GIF). The hacker could email the TIFF to you, direct you to a webpage where it is embedded or send it directly to your phone via text message if they know your number.
Malicious image files are becoming a popular hacker attack since they can be easily distributed over the web or email without raising any suspicions.
Ensure your Apple devices are updated to the latest operating systems:
- iOS 9.3.3.
- tvOS 9.2.2.
- watchOS 2.2.2.
- El Capitan v10.11.6.
