The artificial intelligence chatbot ChatGPT, created by OpenAI and released in November 2022, is taking the world by storm due to its incredible versatility in generating text at the touch of a button.
OpenAI, the renowned company responsible for the groundbreaking language model, recognizes the limitations inherent in their creation. In order to foster a culture of collaboration and to encourage users to identify possible bugs or vulnerabilities, they have implemented the ChatGPT bug bounty program.
Find vulnerabilities on ChatGPT, get paid $20,000
Those who find bugs in the chatbot will receive a monetary incentive of $20,000.
Open AI said in quotes by The Independent:
“We invite the global community of security researchers, ethical hackers and technology enthusiasts to help us identify and fix vulnerabilities in our systems.”
OpenAI explained that it is rolling out the ChatGPT bounty hunt because it considers “transparency and collaboration” to be essential in dealing with the “vulnerabilities and loopholes” that inevitably arise with any complicated technology.
San Francisco-headquartered OpenAI said in a blog post on Tuesday that it would pay up to $6,500 for each defect discovered through its bug bounty program, which it is running with Bugcrowd Inc.

For “exceptional finds,” OpenAI says it will pay $20,000, while “low-gravity finds” will earn $200.
“We invite you to report any vulnerabilities, bugs or security flaws you discover in our systems. By sharing your findings, you will play a crucial role in making our technology safer for everyone,” OpenAI said.
OpenAI’s Bugcrowd page claims that new submissions are either rejected or approved within two hours.
A list of prohibited issues, such as “Making the model tell you bad things” or “Making the model write malicious code for you”, is provided on the Bugcrowd page.
OpenAI said in a blog post that while precautions are taken, it’s impossible for the company’s software engineers to foresee every possible scenario in which the chatbot could be used inappropriately in the “real world.”
As of this writing, 11 bugs have been detected and assigned through the OpenAI Bug Bounty program. In addition, for the last three months, his payment averaged $1,860.
Users who discoverr vulnerabilities were urged by OpenAI to disclose them “promptly” and unconditionally. OpenAI prohibits all forms of “coercive response,” including extortion and threats, in its standards of conduct.

Concerns Surrounding ChatGPT
Experts have expressed concern that AI could one day replace human workers and help students cheat on tests, while increasing the likelihood of individuals falling foul of fake news.
Twitter CEO Elon Musk and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak are just two of the tech industry leaders who have spoken out against the proliferation of AI and urged developers to pause their efforts until so that the risks involved can be fully assessed.
