I also agree it could be the agencies, they need to recruit other actors like you said, so it'd give them a reason to flaunt the rules of information embargos or whatever. It surely didn't take them long to delete it, less than a day, so they must get these kinds of complaints regularly and someone is definitely on the ball with reporting them.
I'll definitely wear that tin foil hat alongside you Mr Chalk, anything could happen nowadays, you never know who is watching. Deliberate leaks might be more commonplace than we realise, as we're just sitting here chewing on whatever we can, though I personally find it a strange strategy. I'd take even a screenshot of a tree right now over this.
Hey Jabalous, you've found all this stuff so far... I think you're putting up a smoke screen by trying to blame us, it must be YOU!
The Hacker One usage is certainly interesting too. I've not seen them be so open about acknowledging their vulnerabilities before. I'm guessing they really want to tackle what's been happening with GTA Online, in effort to make RDR2 even more watertight. And it's a good thing, we don't want the community turning into spoiled brats over this game as well.
