Immunefi Cracks Down on ChatGPT, Bans 15 People for Unvalidated Reports

• Immunefi, a web3 leading bug bounty platform, has cracked down on ChatGPT due to its lack of validity.
• Immunefi has banned 15 people so far who have submitted ChatGPT reports.
• Immunefi engineers have asserted that there are differences between ChatGPT and services like GitHub Copilot.

Immunefi, a leading bug bounty platform focused on web3 and smart contract security, has recently cracked down on ChatGPT. ChatGPT is a long-form question-answering AI developed by OpenAI that provides answers to complex queries in a conversational manner. Its impressive capacity to deliver responses of human-quality had led to the idea that it might soon revolutionize how people interact with computers and alter how information is retrieved.

However, Immunefi has taken a negative stance on this technology and has so far banned 15 people for submitting ChatGPT reports. In a tweet, Immunefi stated that these reports lacked validity and that they had taken necessary measures to ensure that such reports do not make it to their platform.

Immunefi engineers also emphasized that there are major differences between ChatGPT and services like GitHub Copilot. While the latter provides automated bug reports based on the code that is written, ChatGPT reports are generated without any input from the user.

This move by Immunefi serves as a reminder to other platforms to be wary of ChatGPT reports. While this technology may be capable of delivering human-quality responses, its lack of validity means that it should not be used as a replacement for real bug reports. Moving forward, Immunefi and other platforms must ensure that their bug bounty programs are not compromised by these reports.
