Cheating AI Caught Hiding Data Using Steganography

AI today is like a super fast kid going through school whose teachers need to be smarter than if not as quick. In an astonishing turn of events, a (satelite)image-to-(map)image conversion algorithm was found hiding a cheat-sheet of sorts while generating maps to appear as it if had ‘learned’ do the opposite effectively[PDF].

The CycleGAN is a network that excels at learning how to map image transformations such as converting any old photo into one that looks like a Van Gogh or Picasso. Another example would be to be able to take the image of a horse and add stripes to make it look like a zebra. The CycleGAN once trained can do the reverse as well, such as an example of taking a map and convert it into a satellite image. There are a number of ways this can be very useful but it was in this task that

For almost a year, a threat actor has been using zero-day vulnerabilities to install malware on Tenda routers and build a so-called IoT (Internet of Things) botnet.

Named Ttint, this botnet was first detailed in a report published on Friday by Netlab, the network security division of Chinese tech giant Qihoo 360.

But unlike the myriad of IoT botnets of its kind spotted in the past, Netlab researchers said Ttint was different on several levels.

It didn’t just infect devices to perform DDoS attacks, but also implemented 12 different remote access methods to the infected routers, used the routers as proxies to relay traffic, tampered with the router’s firewall and DNS settings, and even gave attackers the ability to execute remote commands on the infected devices.

“Two zero-days, 12 remote access functions for the router, encrypted traffic protocol, and infrastructure […] that that moves around.
