London Police arrested a 17 year old under suspicion of computer hacking. The force itself confirmed the arrest via Twitter, but without providing further details about it. However, unofficial data circulates that would place him as the author (or one of the authors) of the recent Rockstar Games hacks —with the consequent filtration of GTA 6— and Uber.
The journalist Matthew Keys shared some additional data on social networks, waiting for an expanded report from the authorities. According to a source for the reporter, the arrest occurred in accordance with an investigation launched by the FBI.
In principle, it is indicated that the adolescent in question would have links with the hacker group LAPSUS$. Both the London Police and the aforementioned United States criminal investigation agency are expected to make public statements on the subject in the coming hours.

As reported on the forum, the young man had been released at the beginning of April for being a minorcharging as the only additional punishment the prohibition of accessing the internet for one month.
