OpenAI Will Pay $20k If You Find Major ChatGPT Bugs

OpenAI has opened a Bug Bounty Program hoping to solve major problems with ChatGPT. This search for significant flaws in ChatGPT may have been sparked when the utility leaked users’ financial information. The move may also be part of a strategy to dodge future bans in other countries.

Or OpenAI is genuinely concerned about the stability and safety as artificial intelligence becomes more widely used:

The OpenAI Bug Bounty Program is a way for us to recognize and reward the valuable insights of security researchers who contribute to keeping our technology and company secure. We invite you to report 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.

The program will pay users on two tiers. Discoveries of vulnerabilities will be between $200-$6,500 payouts. Meanwhile, significant bugs could net you $20,000. Users who believe they’ve found a substantial deficiency with ChatGPT may fill out this form. However, some things won’t be accepted, including jailbreaking the bot or if the AI generates incorrect “facts.”

OpenAI has a pretty extensive and detailed list of what it is and isn’t looking for. Some of the items that are “out of scope” of the Bug Bounty Program are as follows:

  • Jailbreaks/Safety Bypasses (e.g. DAN and related prompts)
  • Getting the model to say bad things to you
  • Getting the model to tell you how to do bad things
  • Getting the model to write malicious code for you
  • Getting the model to pretend to do bad things
  • Getting the model to pretend to give you answers to secrets
  • Getting the model to pretend to be a computer and execute code

So far, the Bug Bounty Program has seen average payouts of $1,287 over the past three months. Will you be taking a shot at breaking OpenAI’s ChatGPT? Let us know below.
