San Francisco: OpenAI, led by Sam Altman, successfully mitigated a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack that led to periodic outages in its AI chatbot, ChatGPT, and developer tools. The disruptions affected users attempting to access the service, with messages indicating that “ChatGPT is at capacity right now.”

The support page from OpenAI acknowledged the abnormal traffic pattern indicative of a DDoS attack, causing intermittent outages over the past 24 hours. The company promptly implemented a fix and is closely monitoring the situation.

Initially, Altman attributed the issue to heavy traffic generated by new features introduced at the company’s developer conference. He mentioned that the usage of these features surpassed expectations, leading to delays in rolling out GPTs for all subscribers. Altman apologized for the inconvenience and anticipated service instability due to increased load.

Subsequent updates on the incident report page confirmed the persistence of periodic outages across ChatGPT and its API. The latest update revealed that the ongoing disruptions were a result of an abnormal traffic pattern resembling a DDoS attack. Despite the challenges, OpenAI has successfully addressed the issue, bringing ChatGPT services back to normalcy.
