Where is this hacker from and how old is he?

The alleged hacker who leaked classified material from GTA 6 was arrested in the UK on Thursday (22). According to the City of London police, a 17-year-old teenager was arrested in Oxfordshire, London, accused of hacking systems. According to journalist Matthew Keys, who has worked for Reuters, the arrested man was responsible for the leaks of GTA 6, from developer Rockstar Games, and Uber.

This action is part of an investigation by the UK’s National Crime Agency and the boy remains in custody, according to the BBC. The GTA 6 leak is one of the largest in video game history, with the release of more than 90 videos and gameplay footage from the still-developing game.

He added that this same hacker was also allegedly involved in the Uber cyber attack which occurred on September 15. Presently, the hacker remains in police custody.

The GTA 6 hacker may have been involved in many other cyber attacks

No Twitter, o jornalista Matthew Keys informou também que o suspeito faz parte do grupo Lapsus$, organizado em canais do Telegram, e que a prisão do adolescente foi feita em conjunto com o FBI.

Matthew Keys further stated in his article that the arrest came after an investigation by federal law enforcement officers in the United States, who collaborated with their colleagues in the United Kingdom to identify A.K. as a suspect in both incidents.

Because of similar hacking methods used in both Rockstar Games and Uber cyberattacks, authorities suspect that the Grand Theft Auto 6 hacker was also allegedly involved in many hacking attacks on big tech companies like Cisco, Microsoft, Samsung, Nvidia, and Okta between last year and the beginning of 2022.

GTA 6 hacker had prior criminal charges and might be the leader of a hacking group called “Lapsus$.”

In a recent tweet, Matthew Keys confirmed many people’s suspicions by stating that the same hacker who was involved with Rockstar Games and Uber cyberattacks was charged for similar hacking attacks on Microsoft and Nvidia earlier this year.

He also confirmed that the teen hacker is associated with the infamous hacking group Lapsus$ who have been suspected to be involved in all of the previous cyberattacks that the Grand Theft Auto 6 hacker was allegedly involved in as well.

According to Kotaku, the gang first appeared in 2021, when they were involved in hacking Brazil’s Ministry of Health. It was believed that the gang had ceased their operations, but earlier this month, they apparently resumed operations and attacked Uber and Rockstar Games.
