GTA 6 – A 17-year-old hacker responsible for stealing Grand Theft Auto footage has been arrested

The City of London Police has confirmed the arrest of a 17-year-old hacker who rumors say may be responsible for stealing material from Rockstar’s servers. It was he who could reach the files from GTA 6.

It’s not a confirmed message yet, but The Rockstar and Grand Theft Auto community believe that City of London Police has caught a teenage hacker responsible for hacking Rockstar Games servers.

The City of London Police is a special police unit that performs a territorial role in the City of London, one of the boroughs of London. It was she who introduced the message that players immediately picked up:

“On the evening of Thursday, September 22, 2022, the City of London Police arrested a 17-year-old in Oxfordshire on hacking charges, in an investigation supported by the National Cyber ​​Crime Unit (NCCU) (@NCA_UK).

He remains in police custody. “

Currently, the police do not confirm that the arrested person is related to the break-in, but it is easy to combine some of the previously disclosed information.

According to a previous report, the Lapsus $ group, whose leader is a 17-year-old resident of Oxfordshire, is responsible for hacking the servers. Earlier, the media reported about the “16-year-old”, but the young hacker has already turned 17 – in addition, he was released on bail at the beginning of the year.
