2024 cybersecurity threats: AI-powered malware, deepfakes, and ransomware on the rise – ET CISO

2024 cybersecurity threats: AI-powered malware, deepfakes, and ransomware on the rise – ET CISO,imgsize-86704,width-1200,height=765,overlay-etciso/cybercrime-fraud/2024-cybersecurity-threats-ai-powered-malware-deepfakes-and-ransomware-on-the-rise.jpg

The cybersecurity provider, Quick Heal warns of a surge in sophisticated cyber threats in the first half of 2024. New malware leverages artificial intelligence (AI) and bypasses traditional defenses, while deepfakes pose significant misinformation risks.

Quick Heal, drawing on data from Seqrite Labs identified these emerging threats:

– Fileless Malware: This insidious malware exploits legitimate system tools for undetected infiltration. Traditional antivirus scans are ineffective.
– Deepfakes: AI-generated fake videos and audio are used to spread disinformation, damage reputations, and commit financial fraud.
– Ransomware-as-a-Service: Easy-to-use ransomware tools empower a wider range of attackers, leading to a rise in data-encrypting ransomware attacks.
– Insecure IoT Devices: The growing number of internet-connected smart devices creates new vulnerabilities for hackers to exploit in launching large-scale attacks.

Quick Heal urges individuals and businesses to adopt a multi-layered approach to cybersecurity. Their Total Security solution uses advanced technologies like AI and behavioural detection to combat these sophisticated threats.

The report emphasises the need for vigilance. As cybercriminals develop ever-more-complex tactics, robust cybersecurity solutions and user awareness are crucial for staying safe online.

What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
