Check Point Research (CPR) documents attempts by Russian cybercriminals to circumvent OpenAI's API restrictions. In underground Russian hacking forums, hackers discuss how to bypass the restriction of IPs, payment cards and phone numbers – which are necessary to gain access to ChatGPT.

Sergey Shykevich, Threat Intelligence Group Manager at Check Point Software Technologies, said:

“It is not extremely difficult to bypass OpenAI's country-specific restrictions to access ChatGPT. Right now, we see Russian hackers discussing and looking for ways to bypass geofencing to use ChatGPT for their malicious purposes. We believe that these hackers are probably trying to implement and test ChatGPT in their daily criminal activities. Cybercriminals are increasingly interested in ChatGPT because the AI ​​technology behind it can make a hacker more cost-effective.”
