JUST IN: 17-year-old British boy, Teapotuberhacker, who leaked footage of GTA 6 gets arrested in London

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that 17-year-old British boy, Teapotuberhacker, who leaked footage of GTA 6 gets arrested in London. (Read More Here).

Uber said it believed the person responsible to be "affiliated with a hacking group called Lapsus$, which has been increasingly active over the last year or so" and which has similarly breached a list of other technology companies this year such as Microsoft, Samsung and Nvidia.

Yesterday, Rockstar issued its own statement on the hack, and admitted it had suffered a "network intrusion" which had led to the leaked information being taken from its servers.

The GTA maker said it was "extremely disappointed", but that there would be no "long-term effect" on development. No live services, such as Grand Theft Auto Online, were interrupted.

In March this year, BBC News reported on a 16-year-old from Oxford known online as "White" or "Breachbase", who was accused of being one of the Lapsus$ group's leaders.

As of writing, the suspect remains in police custody. ‘White’ was arrested earlier this year for similar crimes but reportedly received “a slap on the wrist” with no real punishment.

The GTA 6 hacking suspect has also been identified online as the leader of Lapsus$, a group responsible for cyber crimes against Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, Nvidia, and Okta.

On Sunday, September 18, over 90 videos and images were leaked containing detailed footage of the upcoming Rockstar Games title Grand Theft Auto 6. This is the next installment in the iconic GTA franchise that players have been waiting for nearly a decade.

However, Rockstar Games were not the only ones affected by the hacker. According to an update from Uber Newsroom, the popular ride-sharing company had also been the target of the cyber-criminal.
