ChatGPT is helping hackers write malware codes

Share via:

ChatGPT, the new AI sensation, is assisting even less skilled cyber threat actors in writing code and launching cyberattacks with ease, according to researchers at security firm Check Point Research in a blog post published on Friday.

Since OpenAI released ChatGPT in November of last year, there has been a surge of interest in AI and its potential applications. While it is too early to predict whether ChatGPT will become the new favourite tool for Dark Web participants, the cybercriminal community has already shown significant interest and is capitalising on this latest trend to generate malicious code, according to researchers. According to the firm’s analysis of several major underground hacking communities, cyber attackers with little or no coding experience were using ChatGPT to write code for spying, ransomware, and other malicious tasks.
