How Cybercriminals Use AI to Power Their Attacks

Running a company on your own is difficult enough without worrying about cyberattacks. However, there is cause for concern since hackers are employing artificial intelligence (AI) to execute sophisticated cyberattacks that are meant to steal your data and disrupt corporate operations.

The good news is that you can take precautions to safeguard your business. This blog will discuss how AI is utilized in cybercrime and how you can protect your business.

How hackers use AI

Here are a few ways cybercriminals are utilizing AI:

Deepfakes: Hackers utilize artificial intelligence to generate incredibly convincing false films or audio recordings that imitate someone you know, such as your employer or a close friend. Deepfakes can be used to mislead you into giving money or disclosing sensitive information.

How to spot it: Pay close attention to nuances such as awkward face motions and improper voice synchronization.

AI-powered password cracking: Cybercriminals may easily hack popular and simple passwords using artificial intelligence (AI). Hackers with access to modern computing capabilities provided by AI can automate the breaching process, allowing them to try millions of possibilities to guess your password.

How to fight back: Always create distinct passwords. Consider using a password manager.

AI-assisted hacking: Hackers no longer need to spend hours searching for weaknesses. Instead, they may use AI to construct automated algorithms that not only detect system flaws but also generate new varieties of malware.

How to stay ahead: Keep your security systems and software up to date. In addition, a mandate for routine vulnerability scanning should be established.

Supply chain attacks: Threat actors employ artificial intelligence to embed malicious malware into genuine vendor goods, ultimately compromising your PC.

How to protect yourself: Only download software from reliable sources. Maintain vigilance with updates and fixes.
