Meta detects AI malware campaigns in its apps

The company owned by Facebook shared the measures it applied to detect malware campaigns

Meta shared some of the measures taken during the first quarter of 2023 to combat the threats detected in its applications targeting individuals and companies, such as malware campaigns in which cybercriminals simulate ChatGPT applications or the nine antagonistic networks detected that participate in cyber espionage operations.

The technology company led by Mark Zuckerberg published the results of its Security Report for the first quarter of this year, in which it has highlighted the importance of protecting the security of the people and companies that use its apps.

To this end, Meta’s Director of Information Security, Guy Rosen, noted that the company’s approach has been to bring together teams that work on “integrity, security, support and operations” to drive security “in the most effective as possible”, tracking and taking action against threat actors “around the world”.

Thus, as Meta detailed in a statement on its website, one of the types of attacks that have stood out the most during this period have been ‘malware’ campaigns in which cybercriminals use fashionable themes to attract the attention of users. as, in this case, the generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology with ChatGPT.

Specifically, the company has indicated that, since March, analysts have found around ten different families of ‘malware’, whose attack was based on impersonating ChatGPT applications and similar tools. Campaigns around cryptographic scams were also identified.
