IT security experts announced the discovery of a major exploit that leaves nearly any Wi-Fi enabled device vulnerable to cyberattack. The exploit, dubbed the Key Reinstallation Attacks (KRACKs), is described in the website krackattacks.com as a weakness in the WPA2 protocol that protects nearly every modern Wi-Fi network and enabled device. A: This latest exploit is said to take advantage of WPA2's four-way handshake that generates the encryption key for a connection to a Wi-Fi network.
Plenty of terms are thrown around in discussions of cybersecurity, including antivirus and antimalware. What's the difference? For that matter, what's the difference between viruses and malware? It's important to know the definitions of these terms, along with several others, if you're serious about protecting your data from threats that could endanger your business.
Your business is susceptible to hacking. It's downright irresponsible not to take an active role in protecting your data. It happened again. Credit reporting giant Equifax is the latest corporation to fall prey to a massive cybersecurity breach, and it looks likely to be the largest in U.S. history. Target, Yahoo, Sony; the list goes on of major companies that not only suffered major losses of service, but the personal data of their customers were compromised as well.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
