The following is off the Norton by Symantec website. This post provided as information to Mac owners and no endorsement is given or implied.

OS X Yosemite Bug The first recently discovered bug affects OS X Yosemite, version 10.10. It’s a bug that allows cybercriminals to install malicious software on your Mac without your consent or password. Learn More

Thunderstrike 2 Worm The second is a computer worm designed by researchers specifically to attack Apple OS X computers and peripherals through a bug in the devices’ firmware (software that tells the computer how to power up properly and how to load the operating system). Fortunately, it has not been exploited by cybercriminals yet.

How to Stay Safe: Make sure that you update your Apple firmware as soon as possible. Apple gives instructions on how to do this on its website.
