WebAssembly consensus and end of Browser Preview

WebAssembly CG members representing four browsers, Chrome, Edge, Firefox,
and WebKit, have reached consensus that the design of the initial (MVP [1])
WebAssembly API and binary format is complete to the extent that no further
design work is possible without implementation experience and significant
usage. This marks the end of the Browser Preview and signals that browsers
can begin shipping WebAssembly on-by-default. From this point forward,
future features will be designed to ensure backwards compatibility.

This consensus includes a JavaScript API [2] and binary format [3]
accompanied by a reference interpreter [4]. You can test out WebAssembly
today using the Emscripten toolchain by following the developer’s guide [5]
and reading more on MDN [6].

The next steps will be to form a W3C Working Group, to produce a
specification for the initial version of WebAssembly, and to continue
iterating on future features [7] in the current Community Group. To get
involved, you can join design discussions [8] and contribute [9] to the the
WebAssembly GitHub

Deep Voice: Real-Time Neural Text-To-Speech

Baidu Research presents Deep Voice, a production-quality text-to-speech system constructed entirely from deep neural networks. The biggest obstacle to building such a system thus far has been the speed of audio synthesis – previous approaches have taken minutes or hours to generate only a few seconds of speech. We solve this challenge and show that we can do audio synthesis in real-time, which amounts to an up to 400X speedup over previous WaveNet inference implementations.
Synthesizing artificial human speech from text, commonly known as text-to-speech (TTS), is an essential component in many applications such as speech-enabled devices, navigation systems, and accessibility for the visually-impaired. Fundamentally, it allows human-technology interaction without requiring visual interfaces.
Modern TTS systems are based on complex, multi-stage processing pipelines, each of which may rely on hand-engineered features and heuristics. Due to this complexity, developing new TTS systems can be very labor intensive and difficult.
Deep Voice is inspired by

Hacking Slack using postMessage and WebSocket-reconnect to steal your token

TLDR; I was able to create a malicious page that would reconnect your Slack WebSocket to my own WebSocket to steal your private Slack token. Slack fixed the bug in 5 hours (on a Friday) and paid me $3,000 for it. Recently a bug I found in Slack was published on HackerOne and I wanted to explain it, and the method I used to discover it.
Using window.addEventListener(‘message’, func) and window.postMessage() to pass messages is a really convenient way of performing Cross-Origin communication. However, the biggest pitfall (which we’ve covered multiple times before) is not checking the origin of the message. Last week I was cruising around on Slack, using the version in the browser. In Chrome, there’s a really neat way of watching if any object has any listeners. You can find it below Event Listeners in the Elements-tab:

I noticed this was indeed the case for Slack, they were passing messages to

Google quietly launches Meet, an enterprise-friendly version of Hangouts

Google has quietly launched a new video conferencing application called Meet by Google Hangouts, which is designed for HD video meetings. The web and mobile application appears to be the latest addition to Google’s lineup of business products known as G Suite, though the product page on the G Suite website listed in the app’s description page on the App Store is not yet live.
The URL meet.google.com, however, is somewhat up-and-running. The site resembles the landing page for Hangouts, but without the options to place a phone call or start a text chat. Instead, Meet’s page lets you enter a meeting code to join a meeting, as well as see those meetings you have scheduled. There does not appear to be a way to schedule a new call from the site as of yet.

Based on the screenshots and the App Store’s detail page, it appears Meet is meant to serve as a business-friendly alternative to
