Undoubtedly this thread will be locked almost immediately, but I figured people not following the telegram would be interested in the update:

Make of it what you will.

Will he be arrested soon?  Likely.

 

Depends where he lives I guess. He could potentially be untouchable to US law enforcement.

The guys an autistic 17 year old. Sure he's smart but his info isn't hard to find.

 

If he's still in the UK he's pretty much screwed. It won't be the first time he's been arrested.

How do we know he is 17? And I thought he was Russian.

We don't I don't think. Apparently it's been confirmed he is a  17 year old Spanish, 18 year old British but russian hacker who lives in England.

Since his username is literally ‘teapot’ I knew he was british lmao

 

He's only living there. He's originally Albanian and is believed to have briefly lived in Spain

also, due to rockstars most recent statement it is pretty unlikely that ‘teapot’ possesses a full source code for either gta 5 or 6.

 

the fact that they are not expecting this to cause any delays to live service (gta 5 online) or development of gta 6 means it was just a data breach (they would not release a statement saying this unless they was 100% sure).

His info is widely available if you look. He's been doxxed. There's his addresses, family, date of birth.

 

There's news articles of his previous arrest and hacking.

 

His initials are AK. A username called Teapot2022 was linked to him 2 months ago on telegram. It's him.

Found it, wow they have a LOT of information about him. Damn.

So is the source code that he claims he has bullsh*t after all or what? Because the statement from R* suggests that it won't affect the development of gta 6 in any way

The boy's father told the BBC his family was concerned and was trying to keep him away from his computers.


His mom should’ve taken his computer and completely throw it away

I mean we've already got proof that he has some code, so it's not a stretch to say he would have more code than he publicly released. R* wouldn't say more than what they did - T2 stock was already starting to tank so they needed to say something. There's every chance the dude is bluffing but given what he's shown so far, especially the code, it makes me think he might actually be holding onto the goods. Maybe not GTA 6 code since he's only shown code from GTA 5

Normally I'd think the guy is full of sh*t and Rockstar wouldn't be that careless, but look at his track record with the companies he's breached. 

 

On the hacking subreddit people couldn't believe the knowledge this guy had of systems and security for his age.

 

There's no way he can be on the loose for much longer.

and if rockstar releases a statement like this and the source code got leaked would prove to be even more detrimental for them.

 

I believe they know that he doesn’t have the full source code as it was only a slack breach and not an actual server breach.

There's nothing chad about this guy, he steals people's information and gets paid in cryptocurrency for it, made millions from that in about two years but his assets are seized because he's a moron who can't cover up his tracks, and top it all off his crypto assets are in BTC instead of Monero, which is actually retarded.

 

And he is no super genius either, he pays for keys and performs social engineering on his targets, literally anyone with half a brain cell can scam people through social engineering, all it takes is their targets to be stupid and lack common sense.

 

I mean, just look at the way this kid went on about this, he leaked this stuff here, then went to sleep like it was nothing, and when he woke up, he shared his telegram in hopes of being contacted by R*/T2 for ramson money, literally exposing himself for other folks to dox him which didn't took longer than  a day.

 

I wonder how quick is his jail visit is going to be this time.

Breaching a massive corporation's secretive assets and leaking them to the entire world is pretty badass, ngl. Shame he's pretty much thrown his life away.

the dox was old, from when he breached microsoft and nvidia but people who knew him basically 2+2 together.

 

but yeah, from the moment i saw him dealing in BTC i knew it would end badly for him.

 

i just find it funny how despite being arrested, raided and giving an internet ban in the past which has caused his family to move countries two times, he hasn’t learned at all and still failed to cover his tracks.

 

to get exposed one day after your leak of potentially the biggest game in history just seems like complacency came back to bite him once again.

Eh, I give it a month in juvenile jail before he's back at it again, he has the know-how.

 

And he will keep this up until he's not a minor anymore, because by then he's gonna see the actual consequences of his actions and get a lengthy prison sentence.

 

Botton line here is: Don't glorify this kid, he is not a uber genius of hacking, he's just looking for easy money.

How can anyone be sure that this telegram is legit? Also, I’m from the UK and the hacker sleeping patterns do not match up. Even if they went to bed earlier or later. Their post was like 3am UK time.

A lot of misinformation going on here.

His identity hasn't been confirmed, the country he's in hasn't been confirmed, whether he's affiliated with any hacking groups hasn't been confirmed. He claims to be the same guy who hacked Uber (who was never caught), but that hasn't been confirmed. As far as anyone can tell he hasn't yet sold anything and is trying to make a deal with Rockstar/Take-Two. Everything at the moment is hearsay and rumour.

 

Edit - he was also last online 2 hours ago on telegram so it's likely he hasn't yet been apprehended.
