Aroundwomen had their photos ed to a bot, on the WhatsApp-like text messaging app Telegram, which were then used to generate computer-generated fake nudes of them without their knowledge or consent, researchers revealed on Tuesday.
The text messaging service Telegram was used to generate and share these fake nudes. The report found that users interacting with these bots were mainly creating fake nudes of women they know from images taken from social media, which is then shared and traded on other Telegram channels.
According to the report, the bots received ificant advertising on the Russian social media website VK. The fake nudes of these women were generated using photos that were either taken from social media or private material.
This is unlike deepfake non-consensual pornographic videos where celebrities are often the target. While direct messages on Telegram feature unbreakable end-to-end encryption, which makes illegal content hard to trace, Sensity found that the Telegram channels used in this investigation were simply accessible by searching the right keywords among public groups. DeepNude was shut down by its developers in a single day after it received extensive critical media coverage.
The researchers note that the Telegram bot is likely based on an open-source version of DeepNude, however, simpler and easier to use than the original desktop app. While most of the coverage on deepfakes has focused heavily on politics and elections many experts worry that the actual victims of this technology may be people who are socially vulnerable.
