This notorious group is believed to be behind the hack


A collective of hackers could be responsible for the leak of GTA 6.

Not only was there a mega leak over the weekend, in which 90 videos of an early build of GTA 6 were posted; Hacker Tea Pot, who was responsible for it, also wanted to blackmail developer Rockstar into claiming to have the source code for the unannounced open-world highlight. Now, of course, the question arises as to who is behind the pseudonym – and therefore the attack. It could possibly be a member of a notorious hacker collective that has attacked other well-known companies.

However, investigations are still ongoing.

Uber links hack to GTA 6 leak: In the official statement, Uber says it believes the hacker responsible for the attack belongs to the Lapsus$ group, which has launched attacks against various large tech companies. Uber names Microsoft and Nvidia, for example, but also writes that there are reports that the group is responsible for the Rockstar leak. We are working with the FBI and the US Department of Justice on the matter.
