Cyber criminals have recently started using Facebook to pretend to be well-known generative AI brands like ChatGPT, Google Bard, Midjourney, and Jasper to steal users’ personal information.
Users on Facebook are deceived into downloading content from fake brand sites and advertisements.
These downloads contain harmful malware that steals users’ internet credentials for banking, social networking, gaming, and other services, their cryptocurrency wallets, and any data saved in their browsers.
According to the Check Point Research Team (CPR), the majority of Facebook campaigns that use fake sites and dangerous advertisements eventually spread malware that steals information.
Users who are not aware of the situation are liking and commenting on fake posts, spreading them to their social networks.
