So Check Point Research just put out this wild report about OpenAI’s GPT-4 and how it’s getting into malware analysis. They’re talking about how powerful and smart GPT-4 is, especially when it comes to understanding and summarizing stuff. But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows – there’s a clear ‘ceiling’ holding GPT-4 back from being as efficient as it could be in analyzing malware.
But man, GPT-4 is no joke. It can do in hours what would take us weeks. It’s like having access to a huge cheat sheet of human knowledge. Like, it can just pull up the info on GandCrab and even do a Google Scholar search without breaking a sweat.
But here’s the thing – GPT-4 struggles to take all that knowledge and put it into action. It’s like a student who memorizes everything but doesn’t really understand it. And when it comes to dealing with malware analysis tasks, GPT-4 hits some roadblocks. It’s like there’s a gap between the info it has and what it can actually do with it.
The folks at Check Point Research have some hacks and tricks they think could help GPT-4 do a better job at malware analysis. They’ve got this proof of concept showing how a specially crafted prompt can guide GPT-4 through the triage phase of analyzing malware.
Overall, it’s a fascinating look at how AI like GPT-4 can work with cybersecurity. It’s like we’re just scratching the surface of what’s possible here.
