Official information about whether the attacker is involved in the recent drain has not yet been received.
Last week, a hacker under the alias teapotuberhacker tripled a large-scale leak of materials from an early version of Grand Theft Auto 6. He published videos, screenshots, and even part of the source code, which caused a huge stir. After that, the attacker suggested that Take-Two Interactive and Rockstar Games come to an agreement, but the companies did not seem to make a deal, but decided to identify the hacker. Such a conclusion suggests itself from the recent arrest of a hacking suspect.
Journalist Matthew Case reported on a personal account in Twitterthat the British police arrested a 17-year-old boy in Oxfordshire, a county in the south of England. The BBC portal said that he was suspected of hacking. Later, this information was confirmed by members of law enforcement agencies, but without details.
However, Case shared the details with reference to his own source. The guy is suspected of the recent Rockstar Games and Uber hacks. Apparently, he is associated with the Lapsus $ group, which was called responsible for recent incidents. The fact that one person is behind the theft of data from two companies was reported immediately after the publication of materials from an early version of GTA 6.
Official details of the arrest should appear soon. The police promised to share information about the arrest of the suspect in the near future.
