Compromised ChatGPT accounts garner rapid dark web popularity

Compromised credentials were found within the logs of info-stealing malware traded on illicit dark web marketplaces over the past year, according to Group-IB. The number of available logs containing compromised ChatGPT accounts reached a peak of 26,802 in May 2023.

Unauthorized access to ChatGPT accounts may expose confidential or sensitive information, which can be exploited for targeted attacks against companies and their employees.

According to Group-IB, ChatGPT accounts have already gained significant popularity within underground communities.

The analysis of underground marketplaces revealed that the majority of logs containing ChatGPT accounts have been breached by the infamous Raccoon info stealer.

The growing popularity of the AI-powered chatbot is evident in the consistent increase of compromised ChatGPT accounts observed throughout the past year.

To mitigate the risks associated with compromised ChatGPT accounts, researchers advise users to update their passwords regularly and implement two-factor authentication.
