If you are new to this story, Lapsus$ is also responsible for the hacking that Uber experienced earlier this month. Uber had already announced that they were working with Rockstar and the FBI to track down this hacker. As it would seem, their efforts have borne fruit. However, specific details regarding the arrest are not yet available to the general public. Stay tuned for more news should we get more details.

This leak is one of the biggest leaks in Grand Theft Auto's history. The hacker, under the name teapotuberhacker, uploaded more than 90 videos onto the Grand Theft Auto fan forum. The videos contained early gameplay clips from what appeared to be an early build of the highly anticipated GTA 6. These clips confirmed various rumors, such as a female main character, as well as the game being set in Vice City. Within a day, DMCA takedown requests were filed by Take-Two against the uploaded videos. Rockstar also gave an official response to the GTA 6 leak.
