Someone using the alias “teapotuberhacker” broke into the servers of the company that produced the game GTA. Allegations of theft of GTA5 and GTA6 source code. As proof of this, he posted in one of the Internet forums several screenshots of the source code and almost a hundred video files with the new gameplay of GTA6.
The thief is blackmailing Rockstar Games, but it is doubtful that the company will pay a ransom for not publishing more material. So far, Rockstar Games has not released any message but has removed, among other things some gameplay uploaded from YouTube showing the developers’ work on the game (along with their comments on some of the situations they have corrected).

Oh damn, here we go again…
This attack is related to data leakage. second. But if you are playing GTA, don’t panic yet.
It’s true that Rockstar Games has yet to report the scale of the incident (maybe still analyzing it), but based on what the thief got up to, the threat to players appears to be minimal. The attacker may not have entered into any infrastructure that could threaten the game. But for now, that’s just our educated guess, based on how APT thieves behave. It’s hard to believe that they decided to spoil the gameplay by insulting them at least indiscriminately, as happened during the attacks on Uber or Revolut.
Although in the case of GTA it’s hard to say if players won’t take it as a normal gameplay item… 😉
