OpenAI has confirmed that a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack is responsible for the ongoing "periodic outages" affecting ChatGPT and its developer tools.

Over the past 24 hours, ChatGPT has experienced intermittent outages, leaving users unable to access the service. Initially, OpenAI linked the issue to high interest in the platform's new features unveiled at its developer conference. However, the company later updated its incident report to reveal that the outages are the result of an abnormal traffic pattern indicative of a DDoS attack.

DDoS attacks involve overwhelming online services with a flood of requests. OpenAI has not provided further details about the attack at this time.'

Interestingly, OpenAI competitor Anthropic also faced issues with its AI-powered Claude chatbot on the same day. A message on the platform read: "Due to unexpected capacity constraints, Claude is unable to respond to your message." It remains unclear whether these two incidents are connected.
