Face ID faceplant: You can't trust iPhone X auth—will the enterprise? Apple’s Face ID is under fire (again). This week, it’s the 10-year-old who can unlock mom’s iPhone X with a mere glance—even though he has a perfectly normal family resemblance to his parents. And after Friday’s revelation that Vietnamese researchers could fool Face ID with a model head, things aren’t looking so rosy for Apple’s latest security tech. Let’s face it, no biometric alone is going to be as good as a strong password.
ROCA #fail: Even worse than thought (and you don't need to be Estonia to freak out)Remember last month’s flap about the Return of Coppersmith's Attack (ROCA) and the weak keys? It turns out that cracking the private keys is way easier than we thought. Independent researchers have played around with the flaw and sped up the process. Then the original researchers sped it up some more. And the estimates don’t even consider using GPUs, FPGAs, and the like. Holy mackerel.
Heathrow USB-drive security secrets scandal: A Royal mess you can learn from? London Heathrow doesn't know how its super-secret data ended up on a street corner. But an unencrypted flash key got lost somehow. Worryingly, it includes plans of secret tunnels and other OpSec used by the queen. LHR, Europe’s busiest airport and the world’s second-busiest international airport, is left reviewing all its procedures. In this week’s Security Blogwatch, we get away from it all.
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".
