  • State-sponsored hackers are using ChatGPT in cybercrime schemes, according to a report by Microsoft.
  • Microsoft and OpenAI are working together to address threats posed by Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups.

Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) groups are using Artificial Intelligence (AI) to enhance their cybercrime activities and avoid security measures. Microsoft and OpenAI are collaborating to combat these threats. OpenAI has shut down accounts that were using their technology for phishing and malware attacks. While AI can be misused, research is ongoing to identify and prevent potential threats. Various APT groups have specific targets and tactics, such as Chinese group Salmon Typhoon targeting US defense contractors and Iranian group Crimson Sandstorm targeting healthcare and technology sectors. Threat actors are continuously evolving, using AI to improve their attacks, and Microsoft is working with partners to enhance cybersecurity and protect customers.
