Hacker allegedly linked to GTA 6 leak arrested by London police

A teenager from the United Kingdom has been arrested on suspicion of hacking, with an emerging report linking the individual to the recent Rockstar Games breach that resulted in over 90 GTA 6 videos and screens leaking online. 

The City of London Police confirmed on (opens in new tab) Twitter that a 17-year-old in Oxfordshire has been arrested as part of an investigation supported by a UK cybercrime unit. No further details have been disclosed aside from the fact that the teenager remains in custody, though former Reuters journalist Matthew Keys cites a source (opens in new tab) saying the arrest relates to “intrusion on Rockstar Games and possibly Uber Technologies”, and that police are expected to give more details later with a possible FBI statement coming thereafter.
