A critical flaw has been uncovered in OpenAI’s ChatGPT that allows users to see parts of conversations other users had with the chatbot.

“We had a significant issue in ChatGPT due to a bug in an open source library, for which a fix has now been released, and we have just finished validating,” CEO Sam Altman said in a tweet.

ChatGPT was down for users all over the world due to the company trying to fix the issue concerning unauthorized access to conversation histories.

OpenAI’s CEO added that users would not have access to their chat histories for some time. However, in doing so he didn’t specify an exact date.

With the release of ChatGPT, many market competitors began to emerge. Since speed and profit are the main drivers for many investors and developers, we might be seeing more security flaws such as this one.

Maybe we should hold off on using these AI tools for now, until we can make sure their use doesn’t damage us directly or indirectly.
