Apple releases new update after hack flaws

Apple has urged  their Laptop and desktop users to  update their OS X El Capitan and Yosemite operating systems immediately to protect  the devices from cybercriminals.

They have also issued an update for its Safari internet browser, "visiting a maliciously crafted website" that could allow hackers to install monitoring software.

The  released updated software  will affect OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, 10.10.5 Yosemite and Safari 9.1.3.

Apple has released the warning  after a week of report of an   attempt to hack a man's iPhone using a link that could have provided access to his calls and messages

The malicious software is capable of tracking a text message, calendar entry, email sent through Gmail or WhatsApp message, and it constantly updates and sends the user's location from the phone's GPS and various passwords.

A security researcher of Lookout, Mike Murray, described it as "the most sophisticated spyware package we have seen in the market".
