    Microsoft Says US Rivals Are Beginning to Use Generative AI in Offensive Cyber Operations

    — Microsoft said Wednesday it had detected and disrupted instances of U.S. adversaries — chiefly and North and to a lesser extent Russia and — using or attempting to exploit generative artificial intelligence developed by the company and its business partner to mount or research offensive cyber operations.

    The techniques Microsoft observed, in collaboration with its partner OpenAI, represent an emerging threat and were neither “particularly novel or unique,” the Redmond, Washington, company said in a blog post.

    But the blog does offer insight into how U.S. geopolitical rivals have been using large-language models to expand their ability to more effectively breach networks and conduct influence operations.

    Microsoft said the “attacks” detected all involved large-language models the partners own and said it was important to expose them publicly even if they were “early-stage, incremental moves.”

    Cybersecurity firms have long used machine-learning on defense, principally to detect anomalous behavior in networks. But criminals and offensive hackers use it as well, and the introduction of large-language models led by OpenAI's ChatGPT upped that game of cat-and-mouse.

    Microsoft has invested billions of dollars in OpenAI, and Wednesday's announcement coincided with its release of a report noting that generative AI is expected to enhance malicious social engineering, leading to more sophisticated…
