The dark web's illicit activities have taken an alarming turn with the emergence of a powerful AI tool known as "FraudGPT," capable of evading security measures and facilitating fraud. According to a recent report from Infosecurity Magazine, cybercriminals are leveraging this generative AI tool to orchestrate sophisticated scams on dark web markets.
FraudGPT provides criminals with unprecedented speed and scale, allowing them to generate malicious content and exploit vulnerabilities across various industries. The proliferation of this technology among malicious actors is a major concern, as it can render current safeguards obsolete, demanding additional resources for monitoring and combating these evolving threats.
