ChatGPT Bug Exposed Users' Private Data, Payment Info
· Mar 25, 2023 ·


Remember that bug we told you about earlier this week that exposed users' chat histories? If that weren't bad enough, OpenAI just updated us on that bug, and it turns out that users' private data and payment info was also exposed:

From OpenAI's blog post about what happened:

Upon deeper investigation, we also discovered that the same bug may have caused the unintentional visibility of payment-related information of 1.2% of the ChatGPT Plus subscribers who were active during a specific nine-hour window. In the hours before we took ChatGPT offline on Monday, it was possible for some users to see another active user's first and last name, email address, payment address, the last four digits (only) of a credit card number, and credit card expiration date. Full credit card numbers were not exposed at any time.

So full name, email, home address, last four digits of credit card, and expiration date.

This world-changing AI sure is safe and secure!
