Hackers on Facebook Making Use of ChatGPT’s Popularity

The most recent article in The Sun UK claims that fraudsters employ software that provides ChatGPT-based solutions.

Meta emphasized that this program actually has malware that gives hackers complete access to the devices of its victims.

The IT company claimed that hundreds of fraudulent web domains connected to ChatGPT and other similar AI models had already been disabled.

In order to stop these virus strains from preying on users eager to try OpenAI’s ChatGPT, Meta indicated that their team had looked into the matter and taken precautions.

In his official blog post, Rosen warned that “the generative AI space is rapidly evolving, and bad actors know it.” As a result, everyone should exercise caution.
