GTA 6 leak. Police arrested a teenage hacker

It looks like the hacker responsible for the GTA 6 leak has been caught. London police announced the arrest of a person suspected of hacking Rockstar Games servers. He is a 17-year-old, allegedly belonging to the cybercriminal organization Lapsus $.

Earlier it was reported that the person responsible for the latest leak of early materials from GTA 6 was supposed to be a 16-year-old. The FBI began its search, and as you can see, the results quickly appeared. We are not 100% sure that we are talking about the same person, but the similar age and place of residence are correct.

As we read in a tweet shared by a verified account of the London police, the arrest took place on the evening of September 22. The teen was detained as a result of an investigation by the British cyber police unit known as the National Cyber ​​Crime Unit (NCCU).

The arrested person may in fact be a member of the Lapsus $ group. In March this year, the London police already detained several members of this organization. At that time, it was about hacking several technological giants, including Microsoft, Nvidia, Ubisoft, and recently we also learned about the attack on Uber. Lapsus $ is also suspected of acting in this case, especially given a similar theme.

Uber officials say Lapsus $ is behind the attack. If the group is still active despite March arrests, the teenager mentioned earlier may have been a member. Who knows if there are no more British teens who will make more attacks. Everything is possible now, the question is who will be next.
