The End of the 匿名 Hacker?


Everyone has heard of the potential impact that Artificial 情报 can have on our future. In addition, t这里 are of course specific effects for each individual profession.

And if you define illegal hacking as a profession, then t这里 too. Because just like righteous programmers, hackers usually leave their very own mark in the programs and code they write. And surprise: AI can easily find clues that expose a hacker faster than they would like.

Anyone who frequently uses programming platforms knows how chaotic the whole thing can sometimes be; it’s often not easy to keep track. For example at GitHub, various programmers leave their suggestions, ideas and code contributions. The more developers working on a project, the more difficult it becomes to determine, in retrospect, who wrote certain code fragments. Consistent documentation is the exception. Machine learning methods are an obvious choice to tackle this problem, but their success crucially depends on the choice of a feature set that represents a programming style. However, new AI systems have developed a simple and highly effective way to solve this problem sustainably.

Two Scientists and a Key Paper

The whole thing is based on the theoretical considerations of two computer scientists. Rachel Greenstadt, professor of computer 科学 at Drexel University, and Aylin Caliskan 500 Internal Server Error星力捕鱼

Internal Server Error

The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or t这里 is an error in the application.


Security vs. Privacy

As is all too often the case in the course of AI systems, there are both advantages and risks in the de-anonymization of code snippets. Because every anonymization also has a protective character, not only for criminals, but for everyone. Now, with Code Stylometry, hackers can be traced much more easily. This would help companies to protect themselves better against such attacks or to defend themselves against them. Malware developers could be identified and prosecuted. But such methods would also endanger anonymity on programming platforms. Because even if you switched accounts in the future while working on code, an AI like that could track you down. And as with other explosive topics, such as CCTV or machine learning, we stand 这里 between 两极of security and privacy – and we have to decide. Perhaps the biggest conflict on the Internet of our time.

  1. In this case, welcome back to reality dear Hackers, and their co-fellows “programmers”. It’s finally time to get a real job instead 😉
    So go and figure.

  2. One night when I was drunk I wrote “Secrecy is an illusion” on the wall.

    Drunk me is not only very perceptive, but also a seer.
