FraudGPT – The Emergence of Malicious Generative AI

FraudGPT – The Emergence of Malicious Generative AI

CHAT GPT, Cyber Attacks
The rapid advancement of AI technology has brought many useful applications. However, it has also given rise to new security threats. Recently, another dangerous generative AI tool named FraudGPT emerged on the dark web right after wormGPT, designed explicitly for malicious purposes. FraudGPT allows cybercriminals to automate and scale up sophisticated cyberattacks such as phishing campaigns, malware creation, and card fraud. FraudGPT on Dark Web (Source: NetErich) Let’s talk about another malicious generative AI tool called FraudGPT, its features, risks, and finally, how such tools could be tackled to protect your business. Table of Contents What is FraudGPT? According to Rakesh Krishnan, a Senior Threat Analyst at Netenrich, FraudGPT is an AI bot tailored for offensive hacking activities like crafting spear phishing emails, generating malware, carding frauds, etc. It has been circulating on the dark web since July 22,…

Passwordless Authentication- Things Every Business and Individual Should Know About

Passwordless Authentication- Things Every Business and Individual Should Know About

CHAT GPT
Passwords have been the default method of authentication for decades, but they come with numerous downsides. Passwords can be guessed, stolen, reused, and forgotten. In fact, 81% of data breaches are due to compromised passwords. The future of authentication is passwordless – faster, simpler, and more secure. This comprehensive guide examines passwordless authentication, how it works, its security benefits, and how to implement it. What is Passwordless Authentication? Passwordless authentication eliminates the need for usernames and passwords. Instead, users verify their identity through factors like biometrics (fingerprint, face, or iris scanning), security keys (FIDO devices that connect via USB or NFC), push notifications (prompts sent to a verified device), or one-time codes (sent via email, SMS, authenticator apps). With passwordless authentication, credentials are tied to the user or device itself rather than a static…

A New Security Evasion Technique- MalDoc in PDF

CHAT GPT, Cyber Attacks, Malware
Cybercriminals are always looking for new ways to evade security systems and deliver malware. To stay one step ahead, security researchers actively look for and disclose new attack techniques to raise awareness. Recently, researchers from JPCERT/CC discovered a new polyglot security evasion technique that uses PDF files to bypass malware detection and deliver infected Word documents containing malicious macros. JPCERT named this technique “MalDoc in PDF”. In this blog post, we tried explaining the workings of the MalDoc in PDF attack and ways security engineers can upgrade their defenses against this ingenious new technique. Let’s get started! What is a Polyglot File? A polyglot file is a file that is valid in multiple file formats. This allows the file to exhibit different behaviors when interpreted by different programs. For example, a file…

Step-by-Step Procedure to Setup Private GPT on Your Windows PC

CHAT GPT
Private GPT is an open-source project that allows you to interact with your private documents and data using the power of large language models like GPT-3/GPT-4 without any of your data leaving your local environment. This gives you the benefits of AI while maintaining privacy and control over your data. In this guide, We will walk you through the step-by-step procedure to setup Private GPT on your Windows PC. The process is very simple and straightforward. We will try explaining each step in simple terms, even if you are not from too much of a technical background. Before you start the installation process, we would warn you of two things: The first one is the package dependencies. You may end up with version or package dependency issues during the installation. You should be…

What is Private GPT? How Do Organizations Can Reap the Power of Private GPT?

What is Private GPT? How Do Organizations Can Reap the Power of Private GPT?

CHAT GPT
Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies like Large Language Models (LLMs) are rapidly transforming how organizations operate and provide services. Publicly available LLMs like GPT-3/GPT4 have shown immense potential, with abilities to generate human-like answers for a wide range of solutions. However, these public LLMs also pose serious data privacy and security risks that prevent many regulated industries from adopting them. When using public LLM APIs, an organization’s sensitive data leaves its private infrastructure to be processed by third-party systems. This exposes the data to potential misuse, breaches, and regulatory non-compliance. To address these challenges, researchers have been exploring privacy-preserving alternatives that allow organizations to benefit from LLMs without compromising data security. One such solution is Private GPT – an on-premises LLM framework designed specifically for private enterprise use. In this blog post, we will provide…
