I heard about this first on reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/apple/comments/uxx2j/warning_do_not_update_your_imac_or_macbook_pro/

It seems not to affect everyone?

The irony of all this is that 99% of mac owners don't even have anything thunderbolt-y, so will be risking getting into non-bootable state for nothing.
