The malware can target Windows, macOS and Linux devices.
HYAS Institute researcher and cybersecurity expert, Jeff Sims, has developed a new type of ChatGPT-powered malware named Blackmamba, which can bypass Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) filters.
This should not come as a surprise, as in January of this year, cybersecurity researchers at CyberArk also reported on how ChatGPT could be used to develop polymorphic malware. During their investigation, the researchers were able to create the polymorphic malware by bypassing the content filters in ChatGPT, using an authoritative tone.
As per the HYAS Institute’s report (PDF), the malware can gather sensitive data such as usernames, debit/credit card numbers, passwords, and other confidential data entered by a user into their device.
