The saga of CTS Labs' revelation of 13 (potential) vulnerabilities in AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors continues. Tom's Hardware managed to get the company on the phone shortly after its disclosure; our sister site, AnandTech, was later able to perform a more thorough phone interview with CTS Labs. AnandTech's Ian Cutress pulled in an outside expert, David Kantor (of Real World Tech), for the call with CTS Labs' Ido Li On (CEO) and Yaron Luk-Zilberman (CFO).
Microsoft introduced a new bug bounty program meant to encourage researchers to discover new speculative execution side channel vulnerabilities--such as the infamous Meltdown and Spectre flaws revealed in January--so it can help patch the security problems. Companies often rely on bug bounty programs to discover flaws in their products' security.
Researchers often reveal new vulnerabilities with flashy websites, clever branding, and a concerted effort to make sure the problems are covered by media outlets (like this one). The newly announced flaws in AMD's Ryzen and EPYC processors are no exception to this rule--in fact, their revelation was even more focused on garnering attention from the public than many other disclosures. It was just missing one thing: time for AMD to respond.
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".
