Although the police have not yet provided details about the person in custody, a technology journalist, Matthew Keyes, wrote from unknown sources that a 17-year-old boy was arrested for hacking Rockstar, which leaked the first images and videos of Grand Theft Auto 6. Moreover, the suspect threatened to leak the original code of the game. It is reported that the hacker also claimed responsibility for hacking Uber, which allowed Black hat to access the company's internal Slack Uber and websites.
Uber recently wrote that their break-in was probably carried out by LAPSUS. The hacker group was linked to numerous attacks on large companies, including Microsoft and Samsung, and the group reportedly even entered U.S. law enforcement databases.
Keez wrote that both the London police and perhaps the FBI would soon provide more information, but little is known about the detainee, although Bloomberg's previous reports noted that cyber security researchers had traced a series of hacks linked to a group of young hackers, LAPSUS, to a 17-year-old boy who lived in his mother's house near Oxford, and that the report also noted that the young man was apparently linked to another young man from Brazil.
In April, the London police announced the arrest of two other teenagers associated with LAPSUS, but this did not prevent the group from acting and attacking large technology companies and governments at an accelerated rate; not only do they view data theft as a sufficient reward, the LAPSUS hackers make fun of their victims through internal messers, through Slack, and even join the Zoom callers to make fun of people trying to make amends for the damage caused by the attacks, they write Bloomberg.
