Hello Guys! How are you? Did you get any news about ChatGPT? Well, most of us, when it was introduced to us, were filled with excitement that it could be very beneficial in helping with query resolution.

However, it gave us many solutions to the questions that we asked. But it became the reason for hacking or cyberattacks. How does that happen, and how could you save yourself from such attacks? Let’s discuss it.

As you know, it’s an artificial intelligence-based openAI system that helps in problem-solving regarding knowledge. However, not only the common public uses this site, but others also use it for their personal questions.

Sometimes you might not know, but it could be a cybercriminal who wants to create malicious content to hack into the systems of innocent people and want to threaten them for ransom. Just like we assumed, it did give favor to the attackers in creating malicious codes to develop malware.

Report

Adversaries are using ChatGPT to build malicious tools for stealing your confidential data, as the report says. “While this individual could be a tech-oriented threat actor, these posts seemed to be demonstrating less technically capable cybercriminals how to utilize ChatGPT for malicious purposes, with real examples they can immediately use.”

This could mean that potential cybercriminals who have little to no development skills at all could leverage ChatGPT to develop malicious tools and become fully-fledged cybercriminals with technical capabilities.
