WATCH: Reporter covering Florida missing child case finds boy himself

Grandmother via WFTS: "Oh, baby. Oh, Jesus. Thank you, Jesus."

That was the emotional reunion between 10-year-old Paul Fagan and his grandmother after the boy disappeared for nearly 14 hours.

WFLA reports that Paul's grandmother, who has custody of the Florida boy, told police she last saw him around 4 p.m. Thursday. She reported him missing four hours later after neighbors searched the area to no avail.

WFOX reports: Police searched both by air and by foot.

It was then that local reporters caught wind of the story and went to the scene to talk to authorities. As it turned out, if it weren't for one reporter from WFTS, this story could have had a very different ending.

This is reporter Cameron Polom explaining to police how he saw Paul come out of the bushes in a neighbor's yard. "I could tell he was wondering: 'Am I in trouble? What should I do right now?' I asked him, 'Can you come to me?' And he came closer, and I asked him, 'What's your name?' and he said Paul. And I said 'Have you been missing?'"

HLN reports: Paul Fagan said he ran away because he just needed space from his little brother. He told officials in Tampa that he spent the night in his neighbors' yard.

Police say they searched that area during the night but didn't see Paul. Just a few hours after Paul was found, WFTS also caught the reunion with his father on tape.

"It's like a wonderful joy, like your son first being born," the father said.

Apple releases 'Shellshock' fix for latest security flaw

You've likely heard about "Shellshock," a security flaw in the software that makes up many Web-connected devices, like smart thermostats, security cameras, lights and more. The flaw allows a user to take control of a computer or system remotely. 

It affects devices running on Linux and Unix operating systems, including Apple's OS X. OS X is the operating system used on the company's MacBook laptops and iMac, Mac Pro and Mac Mini desktop computers. (Video via Apple)

Not long after the "Shellshock" security flaw was exposed, Apple provided a statement to tech-blog iMore explaining most OS X users aren't vulnerable.

"The vast majority of OS X users are not at risk. ... With OS X, systems are safe by default and not exposed to remote exploits of bash unless users configure advanced UNIX services. We are working to quickly provide a software update for our advanced UNIX users."

That update is now available via a download posted on Monday night. 

While Apple insists the flaw won't affect the typical user, it's probably a good idea to install the fix anyway. 

We've seen quite a few headlines suggesting the "Shellshock" bug is worse than the infamous Heartbleed bug. That's because alleviating security concerns requires more than just changing your password; it takes an update like Apple's to fix the flaw.
