Prompt Injection Attack

A Prompt Injection Attack is a type of cybersecurity threat specific to systems utilizing Generative AI, particularly those that generate content based on user inputs, such as chatbots or AI writing assistants. In this attack, a malicious user crafts input prompts in a way that manipulates the AI into generating responses that include sensitive data, unintended actions, or biased content. This can compromise the integrity of the AI system, lead to data breaches, or cause the AI to behave in undesirable ways. Prompt Injection Attacks exploit the vulnerabilities in the AI's language understanding or processing capabilities to deceive the system into deviating from its intended function. Protecting against such attacks involves implementing robust input validation, monitoring, and AI training to recognize and resist malicious inputs.
