Defeat will be increasingly used in organized crime

Defefek technology will be intensively used in organized crime in the coming years, new predicts Europol research.

Europol’s Innovation Laboratory has warned that law enforcement agencies will need to improve the skills and technologies available to police officers to keep pace with criminals’ use of fake technology.

Analyze She pointed out that dip-fake is used in three key areas: misinformation, pornography and document fraud. It is predicted that such attacks will become more realistic and dangerous as technology advances in the coming years.

Misinformation: Europol has given several examples of how false information can be spread through the use of dip-fakes, which can lead to potentially devastating consequences. This includes the geopolitical sphere, and the report states that the United States has uncovered Russia’s plan to use fake video to justify the invasion of Ukraine. After the invasion, Ukrainian government officials warned that Russia could spread dip-fake videos of the Ukrainian president’s surrender. The same technology could also be used to attack companies, such as making fake videos or audio recordings that would be “proof”, for example, that a company director was involved in something illegal. In one case, criminals robbed an energy company of $ 243,000 by making a fake audio recording with the voice of the company’s CEO.

Pornography: The report cited a study by Sensity, which found that 96% of fake videos include pornography. This usually involves showing the victim’s face through the face of a pornographic actor, which makes it appear that the victim is participating in a sexual act.

Document fraud: While passport forgery is becoming more difficult due to modern measures to prevent fraud, the report found that this technology can combine or transform the face of the person to whom the passport belongs and the person who wants to obtain a passport illegally, increasing the chances of a photo passing identity check, including automated checks.

The authors of the report added that, similar to other tools used in cybercrime, the opportunities provided by dipfake are becoming more accessible to the masses through dipfek applications and websites.

In addition, the report notes that dip-fake could negatively affect lawsuits. In a recent case involving custody of a child, the child’s mother manipulated an audio recording of her husband in an attempt to convince the court that he had abused her.

To deal effectively with these types of threats, Europol said law enforcement agencies need to develop new skills and technologies. This includes manual detection, which includes finding inconsistencies, and automated detection techniques, including dip-detection software that uses artificial intelligence.

Policymakers also need to consider new laws, the report added.

“In the coming months and years, it is very likely that threatening actors will increasingly use dip-fake technology to facilitate various crimes and conduct disinformation campaigns to influence public opinion. Advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence will continue to improve the capabilities of the software used to create diphtheria, ”the researchers said.

“In addition, social networks and other online service providers should play a greater role in identifying and removing dip-fake content from their platforms. As the public becomes more educated about dip-fairs, there will be growing concern around the world about their impact on individuals, communities and democracies. ”
