Scenario: A human user asks GPT-N a plain text question through the usual browser textbox interface. GPT-N answers in the form of text, which contains clever Javascript code. Instead of being displayed, the malicious code triggers a browser exploit and gets executed. Now GPT-N has an executable of its choice running on the client side and can proceed from there. It has left its AI box with only a text-interface, without asking the user to let it out, and possibly without the user even noticing. Perhaps GPT-3 has done this already, while "deliberately" pretending to be stupider than it is?
