Teen hacker behind massive GTA VI leak sentenced to indefinite hospital stay | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker


A key member of international gang Lapsus$ has been sentenced following a huge leak of Grand Theft Auto 6.

Lapsus$ have also been behind leaks from other huge firms such as Uber and software company, Nvidia.

In regards to Rockstar Games – GTA’s developer – the group shared over 90 videos and screenshots from GTA 6’s test build last year.

And Arion Kurtaj from Oxford, England, was part of the group.

During the trial which he was unable to stand, a judge has said that the 18-year-old’s hacking skills were a high risk to the public.

The court also heard that Kurtaj had been violent while in custody, BBC News reports.

In light of Kurtaj’s mental health assessment, jurors were asked to determine whether or not he committed the alleged acts; not if he did so with criminal intent.

The teen will now remain in a secure hopsital for the rest of his life – or until doctors deem him no longer a danger.
