17-Year-Old Arrested In UK Over Hacking Incident, Reportedly Tied To GTA 6 Leaks

A 17-year-old was arrested in Oxfordshire, UK yesterday as per a hacking investigation. According to police, the teenager is still in custody, though no details have officially been disclosed. However, Reuters reporter Matthew Keys says that sources claim "it's connected to the hack on Rockstar Games and possibly Uber".

The hacker arrested is allegedly tied to a group called Lapsus$ who "organizes primarily via Telegram channels", a messenger app for mobile. This lines up with previous claims from Breached (a hacking forum) admin pompompurin who claimed that the hacker was a 16-year-old who goes by the alias White (as shared by @LegacyKillaHD).

According to pompompurin, White shared proof that they were behind the GTA 6 leaks through Telegram shortly before removing the evidence entirely. They also claimed that White was previously arrested for ties to Lapsus$, something Keys claims his sources also said.
