Alarming Discovery: Thousands of OpenAI Credentials Found for Sale on Dark Web

Experts are warning about a surge in interest among cybercriminals for artificial intelligence tools on the dark web, seeking access to sensitive user data. Flare, a threat exposure management company, has identified over 200,000 OpenAI credentials for sale on the dark web. These credentials could potentially enable hackers to gain unauthorized access to company secrets and personal information.

The exposure of these credentials is attributed to info-stealing malware, which may contain even more information not intended for public viewing. While the number of at-risk credentials is relatively small compared to the vast number of ChatGPT users (estimated at 100 million), it is an increase from the approximately 101,000 credentials found in the logs of info-stealing malware earlier in June.
