Gamepad UK Police Arrest 17-Year-Old Hacker in Connection with GTA VI Leaks

Lapsus$ strikes again?

UK police have arrested a 17-year-old in Oxfordshire as part of an ongoing police hacking investigation. According to sources spoken to by ex-Reuters journalist Matt Keys, the arrest is directly related to the recent hack on Rockstar Games and subsequent historic leak of GTA 6 materials, and possibly last week's intrusion on Uber, too.

The news comes a few days after Uber revealed that the hack on its systems—which the Rockstar hacker also took credit for—was being investigated by the FBI (opens in new tab). Keys reports that the 17-year-old's arrest by the City of London Police was "done in concert with an investigation conducted by the FBI". He adds that the police are expected to release more information on the arrest later today, and that a statement from the FBI is also possible.

Earlier this week, Uber said (opens in new tab) it believed the hack on its systems was carried out by an individual or group "affiliated with a hacking group called Lapsus$," which has also been tied to attacks on companies as big as Microsoft (opens in new tab), Samsung, and Cisco. Those suspicions may have been well-founded: Keys' source says that the suspect in custody is "believed to be connected to a group identifying itself as 'Lapsus$'".
