Cybercriminals get their very own generative AI

We've already seen how generative AI can be used in cyberattacks but now it seems there's an AI model aimed just a cybercriminals.

Every hero has a nemesis and it looks like ChatGPT's could be FraudGPT. Research from security and operations analytics company Netenrich shows recent activities on the Dark Web Forum reveal evidence of the emergence of FraudGPT, which has been circulating on Telegram Channels since July 22nd.

New tool uses AI to help ensure AI-generated content is fit for humans

Artificual Intelligence Bias

Experts reckon that over 90 percent of internet content could be AI generated by the end of the decade. But we all know that AI isn't perfect; it can introduce biases and errors.

Checking material to ensure it's suitable for the target audience is therefore essential. User experience research platform WEVO is launching a new research tool, WEVO 3.0, to ensure that AI-generated products and experiences are well received by their target human audience.

When putting AI to work, remember: It's just a talented intern

Artificial intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) models have been generating a lot of buzz as valuable tools for everything from cutting costs and improving revenues to how they can play an essential role in unified observability.

But for as much value as AI brings to the table, it’s important to remember that AI is the intern on your team. A brilliant intern, for sure -- smart, hard-working and quick as lightning -- but also a little too confident in its opinions, even when it’s completely wrong.

The official ChatGPT app for Android is just days away -- but you can pre-order now!

ChatGPT for Android

The popularity of OpenAI's ChatGPT led to a seemingly endless stream of fake mobile apps popping up in Google Play. Now, a couple of months after the official app was released for iOS, ChatGPT for Android is due to land in the coming days.

OpenAI has announced that the Android version of the ChatGPT app is launching in the last week of July, but the company has not revealed a precise date. If you want to be sure to get hold of the app as soon a possible, you can pre-register, and it will be installed the moment it is released.

How cybercriminals use ChatGPT for cyberattacks

Artificial-Intelligence-threat

Artificial intelligence (AI) chatbots like ChatGPT have become a tool for cybercriminals to enhance their phishing email attacks. These chatbots use large datasets of natural language and reinforcement learning to create typo-free and grammatically correct emails, giving the appearance of legitimacy to unsuspecting targets. This has raised concerns among cybersecurity leaders, with 72 percent admitting to being worried about AI being used to craft better phishing emails and campaigns.

Chatbots can help cybercriminals scale the production of advanced social engineering attacks, such as CEO fraud or business email compromise (BEC) attacks. Additionally, cybercriminals may use AI-powered chatbots to scrape personal or financial data from social media, create brand impersonation emails and websites, or even generate code for malware such as ransomware. In particular, without AI, creating malware is a specialized task that requires skilled cybercriminals. However, the use of chatbots could make it easier for non-specialists to do this, and we can also expect AI-generated outputs to improve over time.

Economic uncertainty drives digital transformation efforts

Digital transformation

Enterprises plan to invest $33 million in digital transformation projects in the next 12 months, according to a survey of 600 senior IT decision makers.

But the research, from database platform Couchbase, also finds a shift in priorities. 78 percent of IT decision makers confirm their main priorities for transformation have changed in the last three years, and 54 percent say their digital transformation focus has become more reactive to market changes and customer preferences, in order to help the wider organization stay agile.

ChatGPT's role in the fake news phenomenon

Following its explosion onto the scene in November 2022, it has been hard to ignore ChatGPT. With the ability to answer questions, solve problems, and create content -- to name just a few of its competencies -- the artificial intelligence (AI) chatbot can be hugely beneficial to businesses and employees. Whether used to avoid trawling the internet for the answer to a question, write a blog post, or simply inspire an idea for a new product, it can certainly help cut costs and save time and resources.

Yet, the use of ChatGPT has caused a lot of debate and controversy. One of the main areas of concern is around employment -- if AI can do the same, if not a better, job than humans, for a fraction of the cost, are business leaders likely to replace humans with this technology? Goldman Sachs has predicted that as many as 300 million full-time jobs could be diminished or lost to AI and automation technology. However, it is not as straightforward as some of the most pessimistic outlooks make it seem.

ChatGPT can generate Windows product keys that allow free upgrades to Windows 11 Pro

ChatGPT website through a magnifying glass

It has been hard to ignore ChatGPT this year as the world goes crazy for the AI tool. While the artificial intelligence is still in its relative infancy, it is astonishing just what can be achieved with it; all that's needed is an idea and a cleverly worded prompt.

There are limitations to what it can do, some of which have been hard-coded into it. In theory, ChatGPT won't do anything illegal, or provide access to illegal content. In theory. Just as users found that while the AI wouldn't provide a list of torrent sites when asked, there was a way to bypass the block (by asking for a list of sites to dodge in order avoid encountering illegal content), and so a technique has been unearthed that can be exploited to get ChatGPT to spew out product keys for Windows 10 and Windows 11.

ChatGPT as a development tool? Yes, if used judiciously

Despite the concerns of many programmers about ChatGPT and other generative AI making our profession irrelevant, the software industry will always need skilled human developers to solve hard problems. I’m certainly not ignoring ChatGPT’s ability to generate solid code. It definitely can. But, it’s not anywhere near ready to produce code without human supervision. Its developers are working to improve its accuracy, but ChatGPT currently has a hallucination problem, where it creates content -- including code -- that may look good at a cursory glance but isn’t actually correct.

That said, in the hands of an experienced programmer, ChatGPT can be a powerful development tool that significantly reduces the amount of time it takes to develop a solution. Note, "experienced" is not a throwaway adjective here. For code generation, ChatGPT is a tool that novice developers should employ carefully. You need good instincts for discerning what’s well-formed code and what isn’t, and those skills grow with  years of development experience.

The misconceptions around ChatGPT and the potential threat it poses to Google and other search engines

Since its public unveiling at the end of 2022, many have speculated that ChatGPT is the ultimate route for Microsoft to gain market share and overtake Google as the leading provider of search. In fact, some have even gone as far as saying that it will be a Google Killer, ending its supremacy of search engines online. However, the idea of generative AI making search irrelevant is a misunderstanding of what this technology genuinely represents. 

If we look at how Google has launched Bard, its alternative to ChatGPT, it’s clear that generative AI is not a threat to search but rather an enhancement. Marketed as a complement to search, Bard represents Google’s entry into the generative AI market and its chance to rewrite the narrative around this technology. With ChatGPT and Bard taking the internet by storm, this distinction is crucial for organizations. While generative AI is powerful, complementing it with search greatly enhances its power and versatility, and may be the perfect solution that businesses have been searching for to gain a competitive edge.
