ChatGPT went down because of a DDoS attack.

OpenAI said it had to fight off the attack which caused ChatGPT and its APIs to go down for 90 minutes on Wednesday.

“We are dealing with periodic outages due to an abnormal traffic pattern reflective of a DDoS attack. We are continuing work to mitigate this,” the company said.

CEO Sam Altman originally pointed to an increase in users as the cause of the problem. He said people may continue seeing “service instability”
