ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) chat system developed by OpenAI, an AI research organization. ChatGPT uses a biological language model trained on large amounts of text from the internet to generate natural answers to user questions.
ChatGPT is considered one of the most advanced AI chat systems today, with the ability to understand context, maintain continuity, and express personality in conversations. However, ChatGPT also has limitations and risks, especially when talking to bad users.
The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is investigating Open AI for its handling of personal information and the data used to create its language model.
However, in addition to data protection concerns, whenever a new technological innovation is implemented, its misuse will occur, and such a tool is now on the market, being called WormGPT.
What is WormGPT? How does it work?
On July 13, researchers from cybersecurity company SlashNext published a blog post revealing the discovery of WormGPT, a tool being offered for sale on a hacker forum.
WormGPT is an AI chatbot tool based on the GPTJ language model, an open source version of GPT-3, the most powerful AI language model today.
A language model is a tool that can generate text based on some suggested words or a certain topic. The language model is trained by learning from different data sources, such as books, newspapers, blogs, etc. The more data, the more intelligent and flexible the language model becomes.
WormGPT trained with data sources related to bad activities, such as malware, phishing, fake news… The creator of WormGPT does not reveal specific data sources, only saying that they are collected from underground websites and forums. WormGPT is also continuously updated with the latest data from the internet.
What is WormGPT used for?
WormGTP is described as “similar to ChatGPT but without any ethical boundaries or limitations.
While ChatGPT has a set of rules in place to prevent users from abusing the chatbot unethically, such as refusing to complete tasks related to crime and malware.
WormGPT can create bad content that is difficult to distinguish from human-written content. For example, WormGPT can write malicious code to attack users' computers, create phishing emails to appropriate users' personal information or money, create fake news to cause confusion and disperse public opinion, etc.
At the same time, it can also answer users' questions about bad topics, such as how to write malicious code or how to scam…
Is WormGPT the same as ChatGPT?
The answer is No.
ChatGPT has been developed by OpenAI, a legitimate organization.
WormGPT is not a product of theirs, but it is an example of how cybercriminals can take inspiration from AI chatbots to develop their own malicious tools.
How to prevent and respond to WormGPT
WormGPT is a major threat to cybersecurity and society's morality. We need to take measures to prevent and respond to it. Here is some advice for internet users:
- Always be careful when receiving and opening emails from strangers or untrusted addresses.
- Carefully check the content and attachments of emails, do not click on links or download suspicious files. If in doubt, delete the email or report it as spam.
- Do not believe in news or information that has no clear origin or is not confirmed by reputable agencies. Check different sources of information and use news checking tools, such as FactCheck.org or Snopes.com.
- Do not use WormGPT or other bad AI tools to perform activities that violate the law or ethics. Remember that using WormGPT can harm you and others, and you could be criminally prosecuted if discovered.
- Use tools and methods to detect and block bad content generated by WormGPT. For example, you can use antivirus software to protect your computer, or use text analysis tools to check the authenticity of content.
