• Immunefi, a crypto platform, has recently banned 15 users who submitted ChatGPT-regenerated bug reports.
• OpenAI’s ChatGPT has stirred controversy since its launch, with the Twitterverse commenting on how the software could eventually create code, write stories, steal jobs and even fight wildfires.

Immunefi, a crypto platform that pays out bounties to white hat hackers, has recently taken a firm stance on ChatGPT-regenerated bug reports. 15 users were banned last week for submitting such reports to the platform, with Immunefi developers claiming that there is a difference between something like GitHub Copilot and ChatGPT.
OpenAI’s ChatGPT has been a hot topic in the Twitterverse, with many discussing how the software could eventually create code, write stories, steal jobs and even fight wildfires. But Immunefi is not having any of it. In a statement to CoinDesk, Immunefi developers said that the platform’s reasoning on the subject is crystal clear for now. “There’s a difference between something like GitHub Copilot and ChatGPT,” the statement said. “With the former, you are driving the process and the role of Copilot is offering useful suggestions in context, which you accept or reject as you write your program. With the latter, you are using a single prompt to generate something that looks like a well-written bug report, but is nonsense.”
Immunefi’s stance has been met with mixed reactions. Some have applauded the platform for taking a stance against what they perceive as an unethical practice, while others feel that such actions are unjustified. However, Immunefi has made it clear that it is not taking any chances when it comes to the quality of bug reports that it receives.
The ban on ChatGPT-regenerated bug reports is a sign that Immunefi is taking its security measures seriously. It is a reminder that security is paramount in the crypto world, and that all bug reports should be taken seriously and handled with the utmost care. By banning these 15 users, Immunefi is sending a clear message that it is not willing to compromise on the quality of its bug reports.
