Cybersecurity has become a race between white hats and threat actors. Artificial intelligence (AI) has been touted as a potential solution which could learn to detect suspicious behavior and stop cyberattackers in their tracks. However, the same technology can also be used by threat actors to augment their own attack methods.

According to IBM, the “AI era” could result in weaponized artificial intelligence. In order to study how AI could one day become a new tool in the arsenal of threat actors, IBM Research has developed an attack tool dubbed DeepLocker that is powered by artificial intelligence.
