Overnight, many users of Avast and AVG anti-virus protection have discovered that apparently normal apps are being reported as infected with OSX.BitcoinMiner. Apps claimed to be infected include 1Password, and most of those available from Downloads here, including the latest version of xattred. This is a false positive: Avast and AVG are confusing the signature of one of Apple’s standard Swift support libraries, libswiftDispatch.dylib, with that of the malware.
Revisionist and its companion app RevisionCrawler have both been updated to version 1.0b2. The combined download is available here: revisionist10b2 and in Downloads above. Revisionist 1.0b2 has undergone the greater changes, and can now do useful things, as well as explore document versions tucked away in the macOS versions database.
Here’s a new beta-release of my extended attribute editor xattred, bringing it to version 1.0b4: xattred10b4 It’s also available in Downloads above. This version incorporates code from Precize to give figures for the total size of xattrs, the data fork size, and the overall total size of the file being edited. I have placed these in the text box which was previously used to show the quarantine xattr, when that was added, as that is already shown in the xattrs displayed.
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".
