The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued a warning that malicious attackers are already utilizing artificial intelligence (AI) and that the threat of ransomware and other cyber attacks will increase in the future. The NCSC, which is part of GCHQ, the UK’s intelligence, security, and cyber agency, states that AI has made it easier for less skilled hackers to carry out more effective attacks. The report also highlights that publicly available AI tools can be used to generate convincing text, images, audio, and deepfake videos to deceive targets.
