The FBI is looking into a GTA 6 and Uber hacker.
On Sunday, September 18, more than 90 gameplay videos from the upcoming Rockstar Games title GTA 6 were leaked on GTAForums.com. This is widely considered to be one of the most significant in the video game industry's history.
Players were initially hesitant, claiming that the visual quality lacked the polish we expected from GTA 6, but Rockstar Games later confirmed that the leaks were genuine. The developers assured fans that the game's scheduled release date would not be affected, but the leaker attempted to reach an agreement with Rockstar and/or Take Two.
Rockstar Games issued a tweet on Twitter, confirming that the leaks occurred as a result of a "network intrusion," and that unauthorised parties obtained the information uploaded online.
According to rumors, the FBI and the US Department of Justice are investigating a similar cyber attack against Uber right now. The hacks of Grand Theft Auto 6 have been linked to the same hacker.
According to the article, "This same actor also breached video game maker Rockstar Games over the weekend."
According to the report, the hacker is likely connected to the Lapsus$ hacking collective, which has been blamed for stealing Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, Nvidia, and Okta systems.
According to a story from The Gamer, an administrator on the hacking forum Breached claims the hacker is only 16 years old. This adolescent hacker has been jailed previously for similar offences and is the ringleader of the aforementioned Lapsus$ group.
The hacker's real name was not revealed in the forum reply; only that they go by the name "White" online was given. Details revealed by pompompurin confirmed the Uber Newsroom account that detailed the attack and the hacker's claimed history of cybercrime.
