A few days ago, we saw massive GTA 6 leaks that revealed numerous details regarding the upcoming AAA title of Rockstar Games. It is undoubtedly one of the biggest leaks we have ever seen where more than 90 gameplay videos of GTA 6 were uploaded on GTA Forums.
Some fans were dubious about the authenticity of the leaks. However, later Rockstar Games officially confirmed that the clips were indeed real and also released an official statement.

FBI to investigate the 16-year-old hacker
While Rockstar is patching up the damages, according to Uber, the same hacker who leaked the GTA 6 gameplay, is also responsible for a similar type of cyber attack on the cab giant. That’s where the Federal Bureau of Investigation or FBI came in. Uber has officially confirmed that the FBI and the US Department of Justice are investigating the cyber attack together.
The report also mentioned that the hacker is supposedly a member of the hacking group known as Lapsus$. This group is also known for several cyber attacks on tech giants like Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, and more.
According to another report, the hacker is only 16-year-old and he was also arrested several times in the past for cyber crimes. Online he is known as “White”. Although not much information regarding the hacker has come to our hands, we will follow up the investigation and keep you updated as the FBI moves forward with the investigation.
