Hacker behind GTA 6 leak will be confined to “a secure hospital for life” due to his “intent to return to cybercrime as soon as possible” | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

The 18-year-old hacker charged with breaking into Rockstar’s data and leaking at least 90 videos worth of GTA 6 development materials has been sentenced by a UK court to indefinite life in a hospital prison. 

The BBC reports that Arion Kurtaj, who’s described as acutely autistic, “will remain at a secure hospital for life unless doctors deem him no longer a danger.” This is notably distinct from a sentence of life in prison – which doesn’t always run until the actual end of one’s life, either – but his sentence is still effectively indefinite. A mental health assessment noted that he “continued to express the intent to return to cybercrime as soon as possible. He is highly motivated.”
