Three ways AI chatbots are a security disaster | MIT Technology Review
Because the AI-enhanced virtual assistants scrape text and images off the web, they are open to a type of attack called indirect prompt injection, in which a third party alters a website by adding hidden text that is meant to change the AI’s behavior. Attackers could use social media or email to direct users to websites with these secret prompts. Once that happens, the AI system could be manipulated to let the attacker try to extract people’s credit card information, for example. Malicious actors could also send someone an email with a hidden prompt injection in it. If the receiver happened to use an AI virtual assistant, the attacker might be able to manipulate it into sending the attacker personal information from the victim’s emails, or even emailing people in the victim’s contacts list on the attacker’s behalf.
