Starting almost two weeks ago with the sharing of a hundred GTA VI videos on the internet, the Rockstar hack affair still seems far from over. Witness the appearance of the alleged hacker in court and the arrest of other alleged members of the Lapsus$ group.

GTA: source code sold, distribution of a hundred videos…

It is one of the video game cases that is shaking the world of justice at the moment: that of the massive cyberattack suffered by Rockstar, the father of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, which happened almost two weeks ago. The hacker (kettle of his nickname), which I wouldn’t even be of ageThen, he had stolen from the studio a hundred GTA 6 development videos that he had shared. Disappointing sequences for some fans who felt that “the graphics were the first thing finished in a video game“. A statement that did not fail to provoke many developers around the world, then sharing the alpha versions of their games

In this topic, he also steals the source codes of GTA V and GTA VI: the backbone of video games, that allow computers and consoles to translate them.

Something very important because many times it contains the way of developing a study. Furthermore, it can also be exploited to find security vulnerabilities that allow hacking or even cheating. About that, kettle he allegedly sold the source code for GTA V hours before he was arrested by the police. An arrest that sees him appear before Highbury Corner Children’s Court in London.

GTA VI: the alleged leaker pleads not guilty

Since this case concerns a minor, the details of the course of the trial are quite limited. Nevertheless, City of London Detective Inspector Michael O’Sullivan, analyzes in an interview with Eurogamer the positions adopted by the alleged hacker during his appearance before the judges. He was charged with two counts of breach of bail conditions and two counts of computer misuse:

The 17-year-old who appeared at Highbury Corner Children’s Court on September 24 pleaded guilty to breaching bail and not guilty to computer misuse. The teen was remanded to a juvenile detention center.

Reading these lines, it would seem that the alleged hacker denies having fraudulently used electronic devices (computer, telephone) to access sensitive data. If you really are the perpetrator, you probably have a hard time explaining how the source codes for GTA V and GTA VI ended up in your possession.. The 17-year-old was reportedly arrested earlier this year for hacking Microsoft and Nvidia.

In any case, the case is far from being closed since it seems that some of its partners (from the Lapsus$ group) have also been subject to arrest warrants. The young man, alias Alaska he has so far been committed to a juvenile detention center. Obviously, we will have to wait for an in-depth investigation to find out more about the merits of the case.
