Good info...I'll put a copy of this on our computer/tech forum..

The last bit is how to protect your devices.
[That means you should keep all your other software updated, including your web browsers and Flash (if you're still using it). Also, run security software to make sure you don't have any malicious software on your computer right now.

Finally, look out for phishing emails. Emails that trick you into clicking on a link and downloading malicious software are still the number one way for hackers to get a foothold on your computer. ]

Some sites say updates will be released Jan 9th... so watch for those updates..
