Every iPhone and MacBook in the world will have been affected by this latest exploit
Apple is the latest tech firm to reveal how its devices have been affected, following rivals like Google and Microsoft.

In a statement, Apple wrote that “all Mac systems and iOS devices are affected”, but confirmed that Apple Watch smartwatches won’t be affected – because they run WatchOS instead.

The Californian tech giant explains that the bug takes advantage of the processors inside your computer or smartphone.

These chips attempt to improve performance by guessing what the next task is, and loading it up early. If hackers get access to your system, they can use this feature to steal your sensitive data.

Updating your devices regularly is one of the best ways to stay safe

Apple has already issued “mitigations” – or fixes – for iOS 11.2, MacOS 10.13.2, and tv 11.2, which help defend against the bugs.

The iPhone maker also added that there are “no known exploits impacting customers” right now, so you’ve probably not had any data stolen as a result of this bug.

The best advice is to make sure you’re running the very latest version of software on all of your Apple devices, by going into your settings.

More than 1.2 billion iPhones have been sold globally since the handset first launched in 2007

Lay Down For Free” could be interpreted as a sequel to the Rumours track “The Chain”, only with hearing the sound of rain falling instead of listening to the wind blow on the earlier track. For the song “On With the Show” Buckingham presents an optimistic message similar to that he delivered in “Don’t Stop.”

The songs of the duo are undoubtedly strengthened by their rhythm section, two veterans who are certainly not strangers to them. Band co-founders Mick Fleetwood and John McVie provide that service, the former on the drums of course and the latter handling bass.

Since those four musicians collaborated to make the new disc, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McVie would be expected to sound good. Still, it is one thing to make a good record, but another thing to make one deserving of mention alongside Rumours.

The research also showed that nearly 7 in 10 Brits had been targeted by fraudsters, with over half of those surveyed saying they’d received dodgy emails redirecting them to scam websites.

Tony Neate, Chief Executive of getting Safe Online said: “The fact that the UK is losing nearly £11 billion to cybercriminals is frightening, and highlights the need for each and every one of us to make sure we are taking our online safety seriously.”\

Yeah, you could say it took a while. After forty years, Fleetwood Mac has finally made a follow-up album worthy of Rumours.

Although only two of the members of the quintet are named on the cover, Lindsay Buckingham, and Christine McVie, all but one from the band of the Rumours-era appear on the album. Stevie Nicks is the lone absentee, but the record holds up well even without her contributions.

To record the album Buckingham and McVie chose the same studio in which they made Tusk, the somewhat disappointing follow up to the hugely successful Rumours. While Tusk did include several singles, it never came close to garnering the accolades bestowed on its predecessor.

This time, however, that studio did serve to deliver a true follow up, as nearly every song is deserving of hit status. As was the case with Rumours just two of the tracks, both composed by Christine McVie, are not up to par with the others.

One of her tunes here, though, is the clear highlight of the album. The catchy chorus and lush imagery of “Red Sun” would make it worthy of a spot between the grooves on Rumours, perhaps next to “You Make Loving Fun” or “I Don’t Wanna Know.”

Buckingham had clearly been the most creative genius behind Rumours, writing the classics “Don’t Stop” and “Go Your Own Way” as well as “Second Hand News.” He is also the key contributor to this album, coming up with two of its best tracks.

“Lay Down For Free” could be interpreted as a sequel to the Rumours track “The Chain”, only with hearing the sound of rain falling instead of listening to the wind blow on the earlier track. For the song “On With the Show” Buckingham presents an optimistic message similar to that he delivered in “Don’t Stop.”
