Hackers for China, Russia and Others Used OpenAI Systems, Report Says | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

“They sign up just like anyone else,” Mr. Rotsted said.

Microsoft said a hacking group connected to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps in Iran had used the A.I. systems to research ways to avoid antivirus scanners and to generate phishing emails. The emails included “one pretending to come from an international development agency and another attempting to lure prominent feminists to an attacker-built website on feminism,” the company said.

In another case, a Russian-affiliated group that is trying to influence the war in Ukraine used OpenAI’s systems to conduct research on satellite communication protocols and radar imaging technology, OpenAI said.

Microsoft tracks more than 300 hacking groups, including cybercriminals and nation-states, and OpenAI’s proprietary systems made it easier to track and disrupt their use, the executives said. They said that while there were ways to identify if hackers were using open-source A.I. technology, a proliferation of open systems made the task harder.

“When the work is open sourced, then you can’t always know who is deploying that technology, how they’re deploying it and what their policies are for responsible and safe use of the technology,” Mr. Burt said.

Microsoft did not uncover any use of generative A.I. in the Russian hack of top Microsoft executives that the company disclosed last month, he said.
