Apple's patch is for iOS 3.0 through 4.3.4 for the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 GSM -- meaning the AT&T iPhone, iOS 3.1 through 4.3.4 for the third-gen iPod touch and later, and iOS 3.2 through 4.3.4 for the iPad.

Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
