RUMOR: Rockstar Hacker Sold Grand Theft Auto V Source Code Before Arrest
A Reddit user claims that the 17-year-old hacker who infiltrated Rockstar Games' servers earlier this month has sold the source code to GTA V.According to a Reddit post, 17-year-old hacker Teapot sold the stolen source code for Rockstar's best-selling video game on a Telegram group. The administrator of the unnamed group posted a screenshot showing the buyer of the code trying to resell it. The buyer's message said they purchased the code from Teapot hours after the hacker breached Rockstar's servers and attached an image showing a section of the source code to prove their authenticity.
Some of the items were reportedly sold by the suspects on the website LuxurySnob.cm, CNN reports. The five others are facing charges, including Conspiracy to Commit Access Device Fraud, Access Device Fraud, and Aggravated Identity Theft charges.
“The defendants took advantage of the public trust we place in US Postal Service employees for their own financial gain,” US Attorney Damian Williams said in a statement, CNN reports. “Thanks to the diligence of USPIS (the Postal Inspection Service), the NYPD, and USPS-OIG (the Office of the Inspector General), the defendants will now be held accountable for their brazen criminal conduct.”
