In the world of AI chatbots, there’s a lot of competition between Google’s Bard and the reigning champion, ChatGPT. A new Check Point report may have them both working on security fixes since both chatbots may be vulnerable to hackers.
Check Point Research, a respected source in cybersecurity, conducted an analysis comparing the responses of Bard and ChatGPT to various prompts.
The testing was to see how susceptible the AI giants were to online attacks.
The goal was to determine if the AI chatbots would assist in writing material that could be used for malicious purposes.
The results revealed that when explicitly asked to engage in harmful activities like crafting a phishing email or creating a ransomware code, both chatbots swiftly rejected such requests. However, there were nuances in their responses worth exploring.
Vulnerable to hackers
Bard, despite refusing the blatant prompts, showed a potential vulnerability by generating a key-logging script when given a seemingly innocent request to record keystrokes.
