On 29 September 2017 Reuters reported:
Since 2015, Apple Inc has tried to protect its Mac line of computers from a form of hacking that is extremely hard to detect, but it has not been entirely successful in getting the fixes to its customers, according to research released on Friday (29 September) by Duo Security. ... But Duo surveyed 73,000 Mac computers operating in the real world and found that 4.2 percent of them were not running the firmware they should have been based on their operating system. In some models -- such as the 21.5-inch iMac released in late 2015 -- 43 percent of machines had out-of-date firmware. That left many Macs open to hacks like the 'Thunderstrike' attack, where hackers can control a Mac after plugging an Ethernet adapter into the machine's so-called thunderbolt port.
