More than 10 fake ChatGPT apps that were created to trick users have been blocked by Facebook, the parent company of social network Meta, according to Mashable.
The business discovered that fraudsters are using the public’s interest in ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence-based language model, to convince people to download malicious software and browser add-ons.
The cybercriminals behind these fraudulent apps take advantage of people’s trust in ChatGPT to launch attacks and compromise accounts across the Internet. Once a user downloads malicious software, attackers can continue to develop new strategies to bypass security measures.
To solve this problem, Meta has identified and prevented the sharing of more than 1,000 different malicious URLs in its applications. The company also notified the file-sharing platforms where the malware was hosted so they could also take the necessary steps, Mashable reported.
The proliferation of online scams is making the internet more dangerous and even social media giants like Meta are now warning users about the dangers of fake ChatGPT apps. Users must be careful and download ChatGPT apps only from reputable websites.
