Not really news

If someone purchases a black-box system with no knowledge of how it was produced or how it works, the person who created that system could have sabotaged it in some way. The more complex a system is, and the more inputs and outputs it's expected to handle, the more difficult it is for the user or other third parties to test. That has nothing to do with machine learning, it's true for literally everything.
