Apple has just rolled out a new update to iOS and OS X devices and mind you, this isn’t your regular performance update. In fact, this one patches a frightening bug that you won’t even know it hit you.

According to reports, the attack works by sending a malware image via iMessage, email or simply using Apple’s Safari browser to view the website that contains the infected image. The attack is especially effective since Apple’s messaging app automatically renders images on default settings. Once the infected file is received, malicious code can be executed on the device to collect data and stored passwords.

The exploit is patched in iOS 9.3.3 and OS X El Capitan 10.11.6. There’s another quick fix pointed out as well if you do not wish to update – Turning off iMessage and disable MMS messaging on your devices.
