AI cyberattacks: Artificial intelligence threatens cybersecurity

Technicians as well as researchers are cautioning about the threat such technology poses for cybersecurity, of which fundamentally important practice of which keeps our computers as well as data — as well as governments’ as well as corporations’ computers as well as data — safe by hackers.

In February, a study by teams at the University of Oxford as well as University of Cambridge warned of which AI could be used as a tool to hack into drones as well as autonomous vehicles, as well as turn them into potential weapons.

“Autonomous cars like Google’s (Waymo) are already using deep learning, can already raid obstacles inside real world,” Caspi said, “so raiding traditional anti-malware system in cyber domain can be possible.”

Another study, by U.S. cybersecurity software giant Symantec, said of which 978 million people across 20 countries were affected by cybercrime last year. Victims of cybercrime lost a total of $172 billion — an average of $142 per person — as a result, researchers said.

The fear for many can be of which AI will bring with the item a dawn of brand-new forms of cyber breaches of which bypass traditional means of countering attacks.

“We’re still inside early days of the attackers using artificial intelligence themselves, yet of which day can be going to come,” warns Nicole Eagan, CEO of cybersecurity firm Darktrace. “as well as I think once of which switch can be flipped on, there’s going to be no turning back, so we are very concerned about the use of AI by the attackers in many ways because they could try to use AI to blend into the background of these networks.”
