How to Safeguard Against the Use of AI for Hacking

AI for hacking

Do you think Artificial intelligence (AI) can only make lives better?
Think again.
Now that hackers have started using AI to infiltrate systems and networks, it has the potential to devastate organizations and individuals. People have lost their precious data and millions of dollars because of the use of AI-led cyberattacks. And the sad part is that AI-led digital attacks keep getting bigger and more brutal.
Let’s find out how cyber attackers use AI and beat them using the same sword.

How Hackers Use AI for Hacking

Here’s how hackers use AI today to attack unsuspecting users:

  • Sophisticated Phishing Attacks: Cybercriminals leverage machine learning (ML), natural language processing (NLP), and generative AI tools (like ChatGPT) to create advanced, incredibly persuasive phishing emails, targeting businesses and individuals.
  • Social engineering attacks: These AI-generated internet threats aim to manipulate people with convincing (but fake) personas, scenarios, and messages. For example Deepfakes, automated bots spreading malicious links or news, fake social media profiles, etc. For instance, a UK-based CEO got scammed through voice deepfake and lost over USD 220,000 in 2018.
  • AI-powered ransomware and malware: These can gather crucial system data such as documents, photos, etc., and blackmail users in exchange for hefty money.
  • Adversarial AI: There are essentially two types of adversarial AI: data poisoning and evasion. The former involves adding malicious data to an AI model, manipulating its behavior, and compromising performance. The latter involves deceiving an AI model by modifying its input data and enabling it to misclassify information.
  • Malicious GPTs: As the name suggests, these types of GPTs manipulate genuine GPTs to conduct offenses by generating fraud emails, malware, hate speech, etc. Some of the notorious ones are WormGPT, PoisonGPT, and FraudGPT.
  • DDoS attacks: AI-assisted DDoS attacks can detect and exploit vulnerabilities in networks to cause a cyberattack at a magnified level. As an example consider TaskRabbit, an online freelancing marketplace, faced an AI-assisted DDoS attack in 2018 that compromised 3.75 million users’ data.
  • AI-led cyber-physical attacks: Some hackers have used AI to target physical systems like electrical grids, water treatment plants, transportation systems, etc. This stands as a huge threat to all nations.

That said, is there any solution to this?
