Machine-learning boffins 'summon demons' in AI to find exploitable bugs


open source?

"People [could do bad things...] It’s a realistic possibility, granted that a lot of machine learning software is open source"

I'd offer that these statements form a non-sequitur.

Isn't this what people used to say about encryption? Proprietary = more secure? That didn't work out too well, did it?

Better that vulnerabilities are out in the open, rather than being quietly exploited by those "in-the-know".

This kind of research is possible specifically because the algorithms are so accessible.
