Quick Glance: Russia's Disinformation Campaign Against 2024 Paris Olympics Revealed by Microsoft
  • Russia is attempting to disrupt the 2024 Paris Olympics through disinformation campaigns that blend old propaganda tactics with artificial intelligence, according to Microsoft.

  • Microsoft stated that Russia aims to spread public fear to deter spectators from attending the Games and denigrate the reputation of the International Olympic Committee.

  • The primary threats facing the Paris Olympics are cyberattacks and information operations, as highlighted by Dale Buckner from Global Guardian. These attacks are likely ongoing and expected to escalate as the Games draw closer.

  • Microsoft documented disinformation campaigns, including a film titled 'Olympics Has Fallen' featuring an AI-generated voice impersonating actor Tom Cruise, and the spread of false news clips to cast the Games in a negative light.
