Video conferencing is more essential now than ever
Governments rely on remote communication, businesses move toward making hybrid work models permanent, and individuals want to connect with their friends and family.
However, real-time deepfakes can bring chaos to our online calls by joining online meetings with anyone’s face. This isn’t something that is of the future, but rather, it is happening now.
By integrating deepfake detection mechanisms, video conferencing tool providers would be able to ensure that their users get immediate warnings when a deepfake is used during an online meeting.
Recently, the CCO of Binance, Patrick Hillman was deep faked by a group of hackers in order to pose as him and steal cryptos from officials of various cryptocurrency assignments over Zoom.
The deepfake was created by simply using footage of Hillman in interviews and on TV. This is just another way attackers can use deepfake to target companies.
A deepfake video of Volodymyr Zelenskyy recently appeared on online channels such as Twitter and YouTube. In this video, the Ukrainian President calls on the military to lay down their arms. This is the first identified case in which a deepfake video has been used to spread uncertainty and disinformation in a kinetic war.
Our team was able to analyze the deepfake video to showcase how the right use of tools can stop the spread of such fake footage.
