An attacker broke into OpenAI's internal messaging systems and took proprietary information regarding the organization's artificial intelligence capabilities last year.

According to the report, the hacker took information from conversations in an online forum where staff members discussed the newest technology from OpenAI.

The study also stated that they were unable to access the systems used by OpenAI, the company behind ChatGPT, to store and develop its artificial intelligence.

According to the report, OpenAI executives told the company's board and employees about the breach during an all-hands meeting in April of last year. However, they chose not to disclose the information to the public because no partner or customer data had been compromised.

According to the study, OpenAI executives did not view the attack as a threat to national security since they thought the hacker was an individual with no known connections to a foreign agency.

It further stated that the San Francisco-based corporation failed to notify federal law enforcement agencies about the intrusion.

According to the report, the hacker took information from conversations in an online forum where staff members discussed the newest technology from OpenAI.

In May, OpenAI revealed that it had thwarted five clandestine influence operations aimed at using its AI models for "deceptive activity" online.

This latest development sparked worries about the technology's potential for misuse and raised safety issues.

The Biden administration was preparing to launch a new battle in its defense of American artificial intelligence technology against China and Russia by erecting barriers around the most sophisticated models, such as ChatGPT.

At a global conference in May, sixteen AI development companies made a commitment to advance the technology responsibly at a time when regulators are rushing to keep up with the rapid pace of innovation and new threats.
