How Artificial Intelligence Can Be Used Maliciously in Cybersecurity
Cybersecurity has become the foremost focus in the realm of technology. Unfortunately, it is readily apparent that it’s impossible for the field to keep up with the continued development of malware and cyber-attack methods. Frighteningly, those who prefer to use their skills maliciously have found a new tool that could prove invincible – artificial intelligence (AI). Last year, a cybersecurity company called Darktrace discovered a new form of a security breach. This breach used the formidable trait of AI known as machine learning. The intelligent system watched and learned the tendencies of the network it was residing in. Once the AI felt it had enough information, it began mimicking the behaviors and became almost impossible for advanced security to identify. AI has recently been explored for its beneficial purposes, like scanning networks and systems for infiltrations. Given the report from Darktrace, it is safe to say that the artificial intelligence can be used by the “other side” as a self-teaching tool for attacks, too.
