FBI Examining Supposed Rockstar Hacker

Published

on

Last week, dozens of GTA 6 footage were leaked. The FBI is looking into the suspected hacker who exposed about 90 recordings from Grand Theft Auto 6 and also targeted Uber.

Collaboration with the FBI

According to Eurogamer, the hacker who took responsibility also claimed that they were responsible for the significant cyberattack that Uber experienced on September 18. Since then, the cab firm has claimed on its blog that it is actively collaborating with the FBI and the United States. Justice Department to handle the situation.

Uber acknowledged that Rockstar had also experienced a breach, but added that it thinks the hacker is connected to Lapsus$, the organization that recently attacked Samsung, Microsoft, and Nvidia.

“We believe that this attacker (or attackers) are affiliated with a hacking group called Lapsus$, which has been increasingly active over the last year or so,” Uber said. “This group typically uses similar techniques to target technology companies, and in 2022 alone has breached Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, Nvidia and Okta, among others.

“There are also reports over the weekend that this same actor breached video game maker Rockstar Games. We are in close coordination with the FBI and U.S. Department of Justice on this matter and will continue to support their efforts.”

Rockstar Promises

Rockstar had been keeping GTA 6 under wraps, having only announced the game in February this year, but footage showing robberies, gunplay, fully voiced conversations, and more appeared on GTAForums last week. The footage all but confirms the rumours that GTA 6 will feature male and female protagonists and a Vice City setting.

In connection with the Lapsus$ attacks in March, seven British citizens between the ages of 16 and 21 were detained not long after the group breached Microsoft and Nvidia.

Rockstar has promised that more details about GTA 6 will be released shortly, although it’s unclear when the game’s major unveiling will take place. Only when GTA 6 is ready will it be presented, just like when it will eventually premiere.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.

Hacker from “Grand Theft Auto 6” Appearing in Court Pleads “Not Guilty”

Published

By

The youngster who broke into Rockstar Games and leaked the Grand Theft Auto VI early gameplay video has been in court and has opted to enter a “not guilty” plea to the accusations.

Not Guilty? Really?

According to the Bloomberg article, the 17-year-old from Oxfordshire, England, was already in violation of his release terms and had gotten himself into trouble with two counts of internet abuse.

That was before the ransom hacks on Microsoft and Uber, which have reportedly been linked to the teen’s mischief, and before he allegedly targeted Rockstar Games’ systems and enabled the circulation of catastrophic amounts of previously undisclosed Grand Theft Auto VI data.

It’s crucial to remember that the authorities have not formally named this person as the perpetrator of all of these cyber sieges.

In addition, it’s believed that the hacker is a member of the collective Lapsus$. Over the period of 2021 and 2022, the cybercrime gang seriously harmed a number of organizations, including Nvidia, Samsung, Ubisoft, and others.

According to Brett Callow, a threat analyst at the antivirus firm Emsisoft, “Lapsus$ definitely aren’t wreaking as much havoc as other actors with various incentives could, and I think that’s the answer – they aren’t fully motivated by money,” said in an interview with Wired.

Therefore, they attempt things that cybercriminals with only financial motivations wouldn’t. The trial will proceed at a later date after the judge sent the matter to a higher court. “They are more inclined to be adventurous and to try things – that may not have a payoff – just for the joy of it,” which checks the box for the motivation for an attack on Grand Theft Auto VI.
