Weekly News Summary for Admins — 2018-01-12

Things have quieted down a bit after the Meltdown and Spectre turmoil last week. Apple has pushed updates for iOS, High Sierra, and Safari for older macOS versions.

There also was another macOS password bug, but this one is more specific and less dramatic than the #iamroot bug was.

I do not have any ads on my webpage or this newsletter. However, if you want to support me and this website, then please consider buying one (or both) of my books. (Imagine it’s like a subscription fee, but you also get one or two useful books on top!)

If you have already bought and read the books, please leave a review on the iBooks Store. Reviews are important to help new potential readers make the purchase decision. Thank you (again)!
