CHATGPT, THE CREDENTIALS OF OVER 100,000 COMPROMISED ACCOUNTS APPEAR ON THE DARK WEB
June 20, 2023
|A new report shared by Group-IB with The Hacker News shines a light on over 100,000 compromised ChatGPT account credentials that were reportedly posted on the dark web between June 2022 and May 2023.
|Credentials come from practically all over the world : 16,951 users are affected for Europe, but the Asia-Pacific region is the most affected with “the highest concentration of ChatGPT credentials for sale in the last year”.
|The analysis carried out by the research group underlines how most of the logs containing ChatGP T accounts have been stolen by Raccoon, followed by Vidar and RedLine.
|Concerning Group-IB is the fact that more and more companies are integrating ChatGPT into their tools. “ Since the standard ChatGPT configuration retains all conversations, this could inadvertently offer a mine of sensitive information to cybercriminals if they manage to obtain account credentials, ” the report reads.
|To mitigate the risks as much as possible, the researchers recommend following the classic best practices: use appropriate passwords, alphanumeric, with special characters and symbols and activate two-factor authentication.
|Yesterday the news emerged that ChatGPT is able to generate activation keys for Windows 11 and 10 Pro , if you ask it "kindly" and with some forethought.
