Zero-day flaw found in OS X Yosemite security update


he news comes after Apple recently rolled out a patch for OS X 10.10.5 to fix a ‘print to file' vulnerability discovered by German researcher Stefan Esser that allowed hackers to inject malware and adware into the Mac operating system without needing a password.

A separate research team discovered another major security flaw called Thunderstrike 2 that targets Mac firmware.

Thunderstrike 2 was revealed at the 2015 Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas and can infect a MacBook via a phishing email that can then spread to any other hardware with which it comes into contact.
