Edit to include:
If you’re worried about being exploited during the update process, you can protect yourself by disabling HTTP redirects while you update. To do that, run:
$ sudo apt update -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false
$ sudo apt upgrade -o Acquire::http::AllowRedirect=false

You can however simply update using Update Manager as well.
Those who haven't updated their systems already today, please do so as soon as possible.
