The New York Times says ChatGPT maker is ‘wrong’, denies hacking claims | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker | #hacking | #aihp

The New York Times (NYT) has strongly denied allegations of hacking levelled against it by OpenAI, the creator of ChatGPT. The dispute centres around ChatGPT’s ability to bypass paywalls and generate content from NYT articles. NYT had filed a legal complaint against OpenAI and Microsoft for using the publication’s data without consent.

OpenAI, on the other hand, countered and accused NYT of “hacking” ChatGPT to fabricate evidence for a copyright infringement lawsuit. However, in a court filing, NYT categorically refuted these claims. The publication categorically said that it was not engaged in hacking but rather conducting an investigation to protect its intellectual property. “OpenAI’s attention-grabbing claim that The Times ‘hacked’ its products is as irrelevant as it is false,” said the publication.

The heart of the matter lies in ChatGPT’s behaviour. OpenAI contended that NYT prompted ChatGPT with deceptive queries, leading it to reiterated memorised training data from over 100 NYT articles. These prompts exploited two things — training data regurgitation and model hallucination. According to OpenAI, these are bugs and the company is working toaddress them.

NYT countered by highlighting ChatGPT’s widespread use for bypassing paywalls. Users have leveraged the tool to access NYT content without subscription barriers. The newspaper argued that its investigation aimed to track the extent of copyright infringement, not to set up a lawsuit. By prompting ChatGPT with partial sentences from NYT articles, NYT sought to uncover evidence of unauthorised content usage.

OpenAI’s assertion that “no ordinary user” would employ ChatGPT this way was met with skepticism. “In OpenAI’s telling, The Times engaged in wrongdoing by detecting OpenAI’s theft of The Times’s own copyrighted content,” NYT’s court filing said. “OpenAI’s true grievance is not about how The Times conducted its investigation, but instead what that investigation exposed: that Defendants built their products by copying The Times’s content on an unprecedented scale—a fact that OpenAI does not, and cannot, dispute.”

The clash between AI capabilities, copyright protection is expected to dominate headlines in the coming few months.
