Your Facebook and Google accounts seized by counterfeit ChatGPT browser extension.
AI Language model ChatGPT, developed by OpenAI, has been increasingly adopted due to its advanced natural language processing abilities, making conversations between humans and machines more realistic. However, this growing trend has become the target of cybercriminals who have created various scams using ChatGPT.
One such scam involves a browser extension called “Quick access to Chat GPT” which steals all stored cookies on the user’s device, including sensitive data such as Facebook, Google, and YouTube security tokens. This allows hackers to steal users’ passwords and gain access to their accounts.
Facebook accounts are particularly vulnerable, as the fake ChatGPT browser extension installs a forced backdoor into the user’s account, allowing hackers to take control and use it for malicious purposes, such as pushing paid ads.
Fortunately, the “Quick access to Chat GPT” browser extension was removed from the Chrome Web Store after a report by online privacy firm Guardio brought attention to the scam. However, users who installed the extension should remove it immediately to prevent hackers from accessing their accounts.
