Following the FBI’s warning around criminals using deepfakes to apply to remote jobs, Information security experts reacted below highlighting the danger of deepfakes.

Luckily, the fact that deepfakes mechanisms generate content of relatively low-quality means that they are easily detectable, even to the human eye.

Ultimately, what we’re seeing here is identity theft being taken to a whole new level.
