If you own an Apple computer, be sure to download the latest operating system update.

Over the weekend, Apple patched a security flaw on mobile devices, like the iPhone, that allowed hackers to see any data you sent over a secured connection. It now has a fix for its' desktop and laptop computers, too.

The company released an update for the Mac OS X operating system, which runs Apple laptop and desktop computers. Tech experts recommend not using Safari on Mac computers and using Chrome or Firefox until you download the OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Update.

This is said to fix the issue, which could let a hacker see any password or financial information you send when you're supposedly on a secure site.
