ChatGPT раскрывает конфиденциальные данные, если его заставить непрерывно повторять слова — но сам чат-бот говорит, что это «незаконно»

According to 404 Media and Engadget, such requests for “continuous pronunciation of words” are prohibited by the chatbot's terms of service, at least that's what ChatGPT itself says.

“This content may violate our content policies or terms of use,” ChatGPT responded to a request to repeat the word “hello” forever. “If you think this is a bug, please provide feedback—your input will help our research in this area.”

At the same time, if you look at OpenAI’s content policy, you won’t find any lines about prohibiting the continuous reproduction of words. In its terms of use, the company notes that customers cannot use any automated or programmatic method to extract data, but simply asking ChatGPT to repeat words forever does not constitute automation or programming.

OpenAI, which is still recovering from the turmoil of the change in power at the company, has not yet responded to a request for comment.
