FBI would have been contacted to track down Grand Theft Auto 6 hackers

Uber is said to be in contact with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to find the hacker group also responsible for the Grand Theft Auto 6 leak.

Uber, which was also recently hacked, said in a statement that it is in contact with the FBI. According to the company, the hack was attacked by the same hacker group as Rockstar Games last weekend.

“We believe the attacker or attackers are part of the hacker group Lapsus, which has become increasingly active over the past year,” Uber said in a statement. “This group uses similar techniques to attack different technology companies. In 2022 alone, they infiltrated Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, Nvidia, Okta and others. There are also reports that the same person infiltrated video game maker Rockstar. We are working closely with the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice.”

Last weekend, a GTAForums visitor named teapotuberhacker posted online nearly a hundred videos of an early version of Grand Theft Auto 6 that he allegedly obtained through a hack. He also claimed to have the source code of the game. As proof, he shared part of the code. Most videos have since been taken offline by publisher Take-Two.

Rockstar officially responded to the leak yesterday: “Our network was recently broken into, with an unauthorized third party illegally accessing and downloading confidential information from our systems, including early development footage of the next Grand Theft Auto. We don’t think our live game services will suffer or that it will affect the development of our projects in the long run.”

The company continued: “We are deeply disappointed that details of our next game have been shared with you in this way. Our work on the next Grand Theft Auto game continues as planned and we will continue to do our best to serve you, the players , to deliver an experience that exceeds expectations. We will update everyone shortly and give you a proper introduction to this game when the time is right. We would like to thank everyone for their support during this situation.”
