Scammers exploit ChatGPT to create phishing emails


Cybercriminals are using AI tools like ChatGPT to create convincing phishing emails. In a move that is concerning cybersecurity teams everywhere, the use of ChatGPT could significantly reduce costs for cybercrime gangs and eliminate language barriers. Internet users need to be aware of these scams and learn to spot them instead of relying on spotting phishing scams through poorly written text. According to Julia O'Toole, CEO of MyCena Security Solutions, AI tools such as ChatGPT make it much more difficult to spot scam emails. O'Toole warns that cybercriminals are currently exploring ways to use ChatGPT to defraud victims, despite built-in protections to prevent this. She adds: “The quality and speed of execution of ChatGPT makes it a powerful productivity hack. With it, criminals can now launch complex phishing campaigns, generating emails faster with higher chances of success.”
