Episode 282 includes ChatGPT malware, smart device failures and naughty chat programs

Episode 282 kicks off with new research from Which?, showing that ‘smart’ technology might not be as smart as we’ve been led to believe. Their research shows that most devices stop receiving updates after 2 years, even thought the device has a suggested life of 10 – it seems more work needs to be done. From there, the team look at two stories around A.I., the first on the media sensation, ChatGPT and how some people are looking to use it for malware creation; and the second looking at a chat A.I. program that has become (and I’ll quote from the article here) “too horny.”

In the middle of all this, I sat down with Evgeny Goncharov, head of ICS CERT at Kaspersky to talk to him about upcoming ICS APT predictions for 2023.

Following that, the team discuss news that the Norton LifeLock password manager was breached. Those affected are being urged to update and change their passwords as quickly as possible.
