Apple releases update to protect Macs from recent malware

Once more, and then I hope I’m done writing about this: Apple released a security update on Tuesday to block the recently-released credit card number-stealing malware affecting some Mac users. Download the update as you normally would (typically, that’s by going to the Apple Menu and selecting Software Update).
