Meta Stops Malware Campaign That Used ChatGPT to Steal Accounts

The development comes against the backdrop of fake ChatGPT web browser extensions being increasingly used to steal Facebook account credentials with the aim to run unauthorized ads.

According to the company’s research, the stolen information then enables the threat actor to assess and then use users’ advertising accounts to run inappropriate ads.

Threat actors often create malicious browser extensions that claim to offer ChatGept-based tools.

They then promote these malicious extensions on social media and through sponsored search results to trick people into downloading malware.

The attack chains are primarily engineered to target the personal accounts of users who manage or are connected to business pages and advertising accounts on Facebook, the company writes.

It further notes that many of these attacks focus on stealing the personal information of Facebook advertisers
