Cyber criminals are using AI tools and technology like never before
“Since I deal with all types of criminals, I have come to realize that they are very tech-savvy and use different kinds of technologies. One criminal that got captured revealed that they use AI. If they lay their hands on any video of 5-10 seconds duration, they are capable of creating a half an hour-long video using deep-fake application. So where will they get these videos? They will either pick it up from social media or record any live video for one minute and will then create a video which no one will be able to call it fake. They will add any audio over that video. Earlier we used to easily comprehend whether any text is written by a criminal or not since there used to be lot of grammatical errors. But now using AI tools like ChatGPT or Bard, criminals come up with refined texts and no one would be able to make out whether it is genuine or fake. Similar to a boardroom where C-level executives discuss their AI strategy, we in our meetings try to figure out what will be our counter AI strategy. We are in search of such technology that can help us in understanding that. In my observation, cyber criminals are the best marketers. Leave aside IIM or an IIT graduate, a cyber-criminal having studied only till 12th class has the sense for marketing which very few can possess. I once read a book written by Kevin Mitnick, a world-renowned hacker, in which he wrote about the art of deception. This art uses social engineering attacks and the main component there is to put a bait before any human.”
