ChatGPT is a well-known AI chat service that's being used by businesses and individuals for all sorts of things. The service is powerful and enables life-like chatting to be completed automatically, but it comes with a risk. Reports show that tens of thousands of people are losing their private and financial data to the service in a series of hacks and data breaches. The service isn't all that secure, and that's a major issue for users.
The ChatGPT breach continues to occur because the service isn't secure, and there are vulnerabilities hackers are taking advantage of using malware. The malware enables the users to get access to data stored on ChatGPT, and that data is often sensitive in nature. If you're using ChatGPT for personal or business reasons, take steps to protect your data and tell the service to stop storing data when you aren't using it.
The ChatGPT breach began occurring in June of 2023 and is still occurring today. Thousands of little breaches are occurring, and people continue losing their data because of these attacks.
More than 4,000 individuals from North America were impacted by these GPT data breaches, and many others from other locations as well. More than 40,000 individuals in the Asian-Pacific region were hacked, 25,000 were hacked in Africa and the Middle East, 16,000 were hacked in Europe, and over 12,000 were hacked in Latin America. All these different individuals lost valuable data because the service isn't secure.
We don't know how many ChatGPT files were impacted by these breaches, but we know a large number of people were impacted by it.
