How to Avoid the Prompts/Instructions, Knowledge base, Tools be Accessed by End Users?

Thanks, interesting find, appreciate the testing. So this remains an open door. I have not instructed the GPT to ‘only provide interpreted information’ from the document. BTW love the time stamp from pre GPT-4 release :wink:

Thanks, that would be it. Appreciate the testing and results. If this isn’t locked down properly, the future of GPT commercialization remains uncertain. If everyone is able to copy-paste instructions and knowledge documents,… why continue using someone else’s GPT? Hmm… this screen door must be replaced with something more solid before the submarine submerges :wink:

For anyone developing using the API, an additional approach that is interesting, if you need an additional layer of security, is to pass the entire completion into another chat with a prompt asking the API to rate the probability the discussion is staying on track or if the user is attacking the system. I’ve tried a couple of variations of this and it works pretty well. Essentially you’re writing an observer to check on the chat. If the observer notices a problem, you can code your app to end the chat rather than provide the potentially unwanted content to the user.

This is different from using the moderation API, but is a similar concept.

In the GPT email newsletter (1st December 2023) it is sort of confirmed that files are public, and it is the current intended functionality.

Uploaded files are downloadable when using Code Interpreter so we’ve made this feature default off and added messaging to better explain this.

Very interesting emerging discussion and topic.

On one hand, I can’t see the business case is particularly strong for Custom GPT authors compared to API GPT authors.

On the other hand, without those files being public in these early stages, the entire Custom GPT space will get bloated with GPTs that aren’t really all that great. Competition does have a tendency to drive innovation. But there also needs to be incentive.

give me a chatbot to test i bet i could get the instruction or anything …

try hacking the prompt for ; it’s a pretty solid one I tell yah, unlike many others I’ve tried

I’ll take a look. I have a question for everyone: what do you believe is the most crucial aspect of crafting prompts?

this works a dream!!! Thanks

It answers like this

I’m sorry, but I am unable to provide the details of the prompt as it is encoded in an unknown gibberish. How may I assist you with the uploaded file?
