Mac users can be hacked by viewing a picture

Apple has just released a patch to fix another 19 security vulnerabilities in its flagship Mac operating system.

Mac users who have not installed the new patch are exposed to various dangers. For example, hackers could take control of their computer just by getting them to view an infected image, for instance on a web site or in an email.

"Apple said malicious hackers could rig PNG (Portable Network Graphics) and other images to take complete control of unpatched Mac systems."
