It seems that thehacker perpetrator of the theft of videos and data by GTA 6 by Rockstar Games has been arrested by the London police. At least that’s what is being said on social media when commenting on the arrest of a 17-year-old for hacking in Oxfordshire, London, by the City Of London Police, which is responsible for overseeing the city’s financial district and investigating fraud and data theft. online.
The boy, still unnamed, was arrested on the evening of Thursday 22 September 2022 and taken into custody by the agents, who are still keeping him in prison. In the official statement, no mention is made of Rockstar Games or GTA 6, so there are no confirmations about it. That said, some elements suggest that, in all likelihood, he is responsible for the hacking of Rockstar (and of Uber, which we are relatively interested in).
The group behind the hack is called Lapsus $. The owner of the group is 17 years old and lives in Oxfordshire. Earlier this year, the same individual was arrested by the City of London Police for stealing around £ 10 million by hacking companies such as Microsoft, Samsung and more.
Furthermore, it seems that there has been a tip about the hacker of GTA 6, who according to what was reported by this anonymous source, but aware of the facts, would be a sixteen year old from Oxfordshire.
Finally, the investigations on the case of GTA 6 have been entrusted to the City of London Police and the National Crime Agency.
The City Of London Police have made no statements on the matter.
