- Operating System
First of all, I have to disappoint you. Unfortunately, machine learning will never be a silver bullet for cybersecurity compared to image recognition or natural language processing, two areas where machine learning is thriving. There will always be a person who tries to find issues in our systems and bypass them. Therefore, if we detect 90% attacks today, new methods will be invented tomorrow. To make things worse, hackers could also use machine learning to carry out their nefarious endeavors.
How Cybercriminals can use Machine Learning (2nd part of the series)
Machine learning (ML) is taking cybersecurity by storm nowadays as well as other tech fields. In the past year, there has been ample information on the use of machine learning in both defense and attacks. While the defense was covered in most articles (I recommend reading my first part “The Truth about Machine Learning in Cybersecurity”), Machine Learning for Cybercriminals seems to be overshadowed and not unanimous.
