ChatGPT Users Beware: 7 Out of 10 ChatGPT Apps on Android Infected with Malware

A new report from cybersecurity firm Check Point Research has found that hackers are disguising Android malware as ChatGPT apps in order to trick users into downloading them. The malware, which is called “ChatGPT,” is a remote access trojan (RAT) that can give hackers complete control over an infected device.

The ChatGPT apps

The ChatGPT apps are available for download from a number of third-party app stores. Once installed, the apps appear to be legitimate ChatGPT chatbots. However, when users try to use the apps, they are prompted to grant the apps access to a number of permissions, including access to the device’s microphone, camera, and location data.

If a user grants the apps these permissions, the hackers can then use the apps to track the user’s location, record their conversations, and steal their personal data. The hackers can also use the apps to remotely control the user’s device, which could allow them to steal sensitive information or even take control of the device.

Check Point Research has warned Android users to be on the lookout for ChatGPT apps. The company has also advised users to only download apps from official app stores, such as the Google Play Store.

Here are some tips for protecting yourself from Android malware:

  • Only download apps from official app stores, such as the Google Play Store.
  • Be careful about what permissions you grant to apps.
  • Keep your Android device up to date with the latest security patches.
  • Use a security app to scan your device for malware.

If you think that your Android device may be infected with malware, you should immediately uninstall any suspicious apps and scan your device with a security app. You should also report the malware to the app store where you downloaded it.
