If you have a Mac, iPhone or iPad you should update them right now for your own protection.
If you own a Mac, iPhone or iPad you should make sure you have the latest OS software updates installed which are 11.2.2 for iOS and 10.13.2 for macOS High Sierra
Apple just released two very important security updates for iOS and MacOS, which address the massive Spectre vulnerability that Apple previously said affects all Macs and iPhones.
Spectre was one of two major CPU vulnerabilities revealed by security researchers last week that affects devices with processors from major chip makers, including Intel, AMD, and ARM. Apple previously released software updates to address the other flaw, Meltdown but if you have not had an update in some time, you may currently be vulnerable to both flaws.
While it’s always a good idea to keep your software up to date, these latest updates are especially important. As security researchers have warned, the Meltdown and Spectre bugs are particularly nasty. So even if you’re the type to wait days, or even weeks, to update to the latest software, you really shouldn’t waste any time with these updates.
