People are already trying to get ChatGPT to write malware - Danny Palmer, ZD Net

Like any other tool, in the wrong hands it could be used for nefarious purposes; and cybersecurity researchers at Check Point say the users of underground hacking communities are already experimenting with how ChatGPT might be used to help facilitate cyber attacks and support malicious operations.  "Threat actors with very low technical knowledge - up to zero tech knowledge - could be able to create malicious tools. It could also make the day-to-day operations of sophisticated cybercriminals much more efficient and easier - like creating different parts of the infection chain," Sergey Shykevich, threat intelligence group manager at Check Point told ZDNET.
