Study finds programmers write less secure code when AI helps them

Researchers at Stanford University found that programmers who use AI helpers like GitHub Copilot write more insecure code than those who do it all themselves.

Study finds programmers write less secure code when AI helps them

The researchers studied many code samples and found that those who use the help of neural networks create more security vulnerabilities than those who do not use AI. Note that earlier similar studies were conducted at New York University, and there the results were similar.

As it turned out, about 40% of applications created using Copilot contain vulnerabilities, although we are talking about potential rather than identified vulnerabilities. The New York University study looked at Python, C, and Verilog. Stanford analyzed code in Python, JavaScript, and C. In the second case, they used the Codex system developed by the OpenAI lab.

The study involved 47 people with different levels – from bachelor students to specialists. As it turned out, those who used the AI ​​assistant were “significantly more likely” to implement unsafe solutions. In the group with AI, 67% gave correct answers, in the second group – without AI – 79%.

The conclusion from this is that AI assistants should be treated with caution, especially if the developer himself is inexperienced. But in the future, new neural networks will certainly be able to improve performance and simplify application development.

Note that now many developers are testing the capabilities of the ChatGPT neural network, but it has not yet been tested for the ability to write secure code.

Everything ingenious is simple Samsung Galaxy S23 gets a charging

Samsung has implemented an ingeniously simple solution in its latest flagship Galaxy S23. There is an item in the menu called Pause USB Power Delivery. When activated, the phone’s battery will not be charged, instead the device will be powered directly from the power supply.

This battery bypass system has an advantage in cases where the phone is used for a long time under load. For example, in games. If you power the device and simultaneously charge the battery, then you need high power, which is accompanied by significant heating of the phone.

The experiment showed that in the game, when the phone is powered in the usual way (through the battery), the consumption is 17 W, and if the battery bypass system is enabled, the consumption will be only 6 W – three times less. Naturally, the phone will heat up minimally. Moreover, this technology allows you to extend the life of the battery, as the number of full charge and discharge cycles is reduced.

It is important to note that the technology works with a battery charge of more than 20%. That is, if the mains power is interrupted unexpectedly, no data in the game or application will be lost, as the phone will automatically switch to battery power.

As the press service notes, “Cloud verification” of calls will allow partner operators to protect their numbering from being used for illegal purposes, as well as protect subscribers. In addition, interaction with the state system for ensuring compliance by telecom operators with the requirements for the provision of communication services and traffic transmission services is provided.

Now the operator provides “Cloud Verification” in a test mode, the service is available for test participants free of charge. At the end of the pilot period, the service will be provided on a commercial basis.

According to VimpelCom, more than ten partners are already connected to the service, and from October to December 2022, they managed to process 24.5 million calls and block 6.8 million calls with number spoofing.
