One more. I hope it’s not posted yet. Even AI isn’t safe.

ChatGPT creator OpenAI has confirmed a data breach caused by a bug in an open source library, just as a cybersecurity firm noticed that a recently introduced component is affected by an actively exploited vulnerability.

OpenAI said on Friday that it had taken the chatbot offline earlier in the week while it worked with the maintainers of the Redis data platform to patch a flaw that resulted in the exposure of user information.

The issue was related to ChatGPT’s use of Redis-py, an open source Redis client library, and it was introduced by a change made by OpenAI on March 20.
