IT DIDN’T TAKE long. Just months after OpenAI’s ChatGPT chatbot upended the startup economy, cybercriminals and hackers are claiming to have created their own versions of the text-generating technology. The systems could, theoretically at least, supercharge criminals’ ability to write malware or phishing emails that trick people into handing over their login information.

    I’m not sure being used for a stated purpose (like generating code) in a way that you just don’t agree with counts as a “vulnerability”, though. Same thing as me using a drill to put a hole in a person; that’s not a malfunction, I’m just an asshole.

    We’re talking about making an AI which can’t be misused at this point, and of course that’s a famously hard problem, especially when we don’t really understand how the basic technology works.
