ChatGPT Malware as a Service (MaaS)

May 6, 2023

Bad guys use AI, too

Today, we're discussing the impact of GPT-enabled Malware-as-a-Service or MaaS on the cybersecurity landscape and how we can stay vigilant in the face of these evolving threats.

Investigations reveal that the rise of GPT-enabled MaaS and AI-assisted code has opened new doors for less technically proficient bad actors, for example, script kiddies–or Skids, as I like to call them–making it easier for them to launch cyberattacks. As more miscreants leverage these tools, the risk of malicious packages infiltrating our build environments increases. With the cybersecurity landscape in a constant state of flux, we must be proactive in adapting our defenses.

To stay one step ahead of cybercriminals, follow these essential guidelines:

  1. Stay informed: Keep up-to-date with the latest trends, threats, and security best practices. Knowledge is power, and staying informed helps you build stronger defenses.

  1. Be cautious: Approach new tools, technologies, and services with caution. Verify the legitimacy of software and packages before integrating them into your build environment.

  1. Invest in protection: Use reliable security software and keep it updated. Implement multi-layered security measures and use zero trust principles.

By remaining cautious, we can maintain a strong defense against the ever-changing threat of cybercrime. Keep listening to It’s 5:05 to remain informed and forewarned.
