Apple has released a software update to iOS and macOS that patches a security vulnerability. Without the update, hackers are able to “execute arbitrary code” and gain the ability to take over a device's processor, the central computer that runs everything else. All a hacker has to do is get within range of your WiFi device, according to Nitay Artenstein, the security researcher at Exodus Intelligence, who discovered the problem and reported it. – WP

Apple has lost dozens of high-ranking staffers in 2017. Tanya Ridd, head of Apple's corporate PR in Europe, recently left the company to join Snap. She follows a series of Apple employees who have left for Tesla, including Bas Ording, Apple UI designer; Chris Lattner, head developer of X-Code; Matt Casebolt, director of product design; Sarah O'Brien, communications head; and Colin Smith, Mac communications director. Mark Di-Toro, careers expert at Glassdoor doesn't believe the executive exodus hurts the company. "When senior people leave, there's always that natural churn of employees — that happens everywhere," Di-Toro said. "High profile departures always raise eyebrows, but the reality is they're one of the best places to work in the world." – WIRED
