How Hackers Use AI

Here are some of the ways cybercriminals are exploiting AI:


Deepfakes

Hackers use AI to create highly realistic fake videos or audio recordings to impersonate someone you know, like your boss or a trusted friend. These deepfakes can be used to trick you into sending money or sharing sensitive information.

How to Spot It:

  • Look for unnatural facial movements.

  • Watch for sloppy voice synchronization.


AI-Powered Password Cracking

With the help of AI, cybercriminals can effortlessly crack common and easy passwords. Hackers with access to advanced computation offered by AI can automate the breaching process, trying millions of combinations to guess your password.

How to Fight Back:

  • Always use unique passwords.

  • Consider using a password manager.


AI-Assisted Hacking

Hackers no longer have to spend hours looking for vulnerabilities. With AI, they can create automated programs that not only identify weaknesses in your system but also create new types of malware.

How to Stay Ahead:

  • Keep your security systems and software updated.

  • Regularly scan for vulnerabilities.


Supply Chain Attacks

Threat actors use AI to insert malicious code into legitimate vendor products, which eventually compromises your system as well.

How to Protect Yourself:

  • Only download software from trusted sources.

  • Be vigilant with updates and patches.
