Media, White Hats, and Black Hats
ARS Technica has an article with detailed instructions on how to record information, or fake phishing, using Alexa and Google Assistant. It is a blueprint of how to build rogue skills that pass certification but do naughty things. I know at Microsoft, one of the last things Cortana did was implement developer vetting. It irritates me that articles like this, that have good intentions, not only expose holes to black hats, but make real developers lives harder.
