OpenAI suffered External Attack and Data Breach Last Year

ChatGPT owner did not inform law enforcement or public about the incident.

OpenAI suffered a breach last year, with details of the company’s AI products stolen.

According to media reports, an attacker was able to steal details from an internal forum between OpenAI employees about the technologies being worked on by the company. However they did not get into the systems where OpenAI’s product are built and housed.

OpenAI executives reportedly told staff and the company’s board about the breach in April last year, but did not make the details public as no customer or partner data had been stolen.

The company also did not inform US law enforcement agencies of the incident, because the company believed the hacker was a private individual with no known ties to a foreign government.
