New types of scams and cyber fraud with ChatGPT.
ChatGPT has been generating great interest because of its amazing capabilities and ways to use it for various purposes. All this innovation has also been used by cybercriminals who are looking to get the maximum benefit of some kind of fraud. Eset has discovered some ways in which cybercriminals and scammers have used ChatGPT as a lure to deceive people. Of course:
Fake Chrome extensions. A malicious extension for Google Chrome, named “Quick Access to Chat GPT”, has been detected. While the extension provides the functionality it promises, its goal is to steal accounts from Facebook and other services. Criminals have therefore used stealth methods to create bots and deploy more malicious lists through social networks that steal malware and credentials.

The extension, when removed from Chrome, was available for six days and registered an average of 2,000 installations per day. This plugin collects browser information such as open session cookies from any active service (such as Facebook) and sends this information to the attacker’s server.
Beware of fake ChatGPT sites and profiles on social networks: we discovered pages on social networks such as Facebook that promote information about this tool, but lead to sites of ChatGPT personnel. These websites trick victims into downloading malicious files onto their computers.
Fake mobile apps. ChatGPT is not available on mobile devices. Cybercriminals are distributing fake Android apps that download spyware or adware on smartphones. Cyblea has detected more than 50 malicious files with the ChatGPT logo. (JFCR)
