Using the technique of deepfake, the bad guy spread fake pornography of more than 100,000 women, which can harm the victim’s honor.
In the photos released on Telegram, the clothes have been removed, replaced with erotic images. The company specializes in research on artificial intelligence (AI) Sensity said some victims are still teenagers.
Sensity representative said that bad guys used deepfake technique to create these photos.

This technology has been used to create porn videos that are fake celebrities, but Giorgio Patrini, CEO of Sensity says that there has never been a fake image of ordinary people.
“Social media accounts that often post publicly available photos easily become the subject of this behavior,” Patrini said.
This “undress” tool is available for free on Telegram in the form of a secret message, anyone can use.
Page BBC tested the tool with a series of photographs of women, resulting in “hot” photos displaying the umbilical piercing – something the character in the photo does not own.
Last year, a similar application called DeepNude was removed after a few hours of launch.
“This job is purely entertainment and has no personal harm purpose. No one will blackmail people based on these pictures,” the creator of the service (name P.) shared.
P. also said that his team will block accounts from sharing photos of underage children, but he cannot control the distribution of nudity by accounts that have used the service.
This programmer thinks that the world is more urgent than war, epidemic … and he will soon delete “hot” photos from Telegram.
