Not a good time for Apple devices! Although this won't help I always recommend Mac users use a anit-virus package. There is no excuse really as there are free ones out there such as Avast's: http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-mac . I also recommend their Android security software which is awesome and much better than Apples built in 'find my phone' feature set.
