Worrying development as it puts pressure on Google to restrict Google Apps Script services...

As of 2017, the Carbanak group is back with a vengeance, and they have a new trick up their sleeve. It turns out they use Google’s Apps Script, Sheets, and Forms cloud-based services. All of these platforms are used to control their command-and-control operations related to the new type of malware being spread. The objective remains unchanged, defrauding banks and customers whenever they can.

I'd imagine it's a combination of tools - I've seen similar reports before particularly with Forms hence they now carry the 'do not enter passwords' warning.

Generating slides from spreadsheet data

The G Suite team recently launched the Google Slides API (http://goo.gl/o6EFwk). With this new API, a whole new set of use cases can now be considered, such as making database and spreadsheet data more presentable. There should be no reason why an application can’t programmatically take that data and create slides with it, all without (much) user intervention.

In this video, Google engineer Wesley Chun walks through a short application demonstrating both the Sheets and Slides APIs. The sample app reads the data from the spreadsheet then creates and populates new slides with that data. It’s almost as easy as it sounds too. In the end, a user would’ve done nothing more than to lift perhaps a finger to make this all happen behind the scenes.

This looks interesting for those who like the look of the power of Apps Script but aren't from a coding background 
 
Today we announced App Maker, a low-code, application development tool that lets you quickly build and deploy custom apps tailored to your organization’s needs. It's built on Apps Script, but adds a ton of UI widgets, data models, and security features. It's only available to G Suite customers, and is currently in a limited EAP.
