"Whilst Krack adds a new tool to the attacker’s arsenal, its scope is relatively narrow," says Andy Patel, a security researcher at F-Secure's research labs. "However, if tools designed to weaponise this attack are made sufficiently easy to use, it’s very likely that miscreants will use them anyway.
iStock / SergeyZavalnyuk Public Wi-Fi networks have always been privacy nightmares. The potential for all Wi-Fi networks to be abused, with hackers able to access information sent across them, has been increased. Two Belgian academics have revealed "serious weaknesses" in one of the protocols that secures Wi-Fi networks. Called Krack (short for key reinstallation attacks), if used the vulnerability would allow information sent across Wi-Fi networks to be read.
Nine months after the government commissioned an independent review into artificial intelligence, the authors have revealed their fundings. The major recommendations? AI and its applications shouldn't be subject to direct regulation, but an AI council should oversee the industry. The report, commissioned in February, was described as a "major review" into the development of AI in the UK. After speaking to more than 100 experts, the authors have revealed their findings.
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".
