I thought it was a neologism by darkviperAU

No server would touch it, not one wanting to last anyway. Take-Two's already taken down FiveM once before and it only came back cause an agreement was struck.

Bit of a digression but what was their rationale for allowing FiveM back up? I’m guessing it wasn’t out of the kindness of their hearts. Recognising that users create online content that is good PR? Also doesn’t FiveM require proof you’ve purchased a legit copy of the game? But at the same time they might view it as siphoning off their player base and a threat - so I’m semi surprised the corporate guys (who in my experience tend to take a simplistic view of the world and their customers) allow it to exist.

 

EDIT - worried about an OpenIV debacle style backlash maybe?

I gathered it was a mix of R* being against T2's decision and T2 probably realising the backlash wasn't worth it. When FiveM came back it was after an agreement was made with T2 in terms of what  they could and couldn't do, such as they had to be an update behind.

 

In recent years FiveM servers have completely ignored this and increasingly monetised their servers which makes me think one day T2 will probably put their foot down again in some fashion - they certainly would not be the first dev to cut out monetised modded servers in their games.

Just an update on the "leaker" - his telegram account was active 20 minutes ago. Been over 36 hours since the account posted anything and it's only staying logged in for a few minutes at a time. Make of that what you will.

Imo, the account’s been compromised by someone else and it’s probably not the original hacker. Very sketchy stuff going on

If FBI is involved in this sh*t, it's ridiculous. Murders, killers, drug dealers everywhere, naaaaaah man we finna look for the guy who shared the testing vids of a f*cking video game to help the corpo-rats.

 

It's literally the type of sh*t the entire series made fun about, now they're exactly the ones they used to make fun of.

The argument for me would be based on the answer to the following question: who does this gang hit next if they are allowed to operate unchecked?

 

Who is to say they won’t go after a bank or a government agency. The damage they could do if they successfully gained access would be worrying.

 

It seems pretty certain it’s the same lot who hit Uber etc. So it’s not just about R*, it’s about the cumulative damage they cause to multiple businesses. That’s why it’s worth the Feds getting involved. To be fair it’s Uber who have said they were working with the FBI already. R* isn’t a special case as far as law enforcement are concerned.

That's true, but it reminds me a lot about things Rockstar tends to make fun of.

"Look at them respond so fast when the guy calling 9/11 is a billionaire" or something.

If this didnt happen I could see it being a side plot/ mission. Of course Rockstar wont wanna give the kid any attention though

How do I remove accidental quotes lol


FBI has multiple departments, murder investigators don't do financial investigations etc. They also have enough budget where one investigation is not taking resources from something else.

UPDATE:

 

Leaker has just posted that he is looking for somewhere to host files to avoid DMCA. No indication of what files. Stay vigilant, could be a scam. I'll believe it when I see it.

I still don't think Teapotuber is a 17 year old guy from Lapsus$. After all this riveted attention and attracting doxing, hardly anyone continued to write. I am sure that this is a man from Arab countries.

What I find interesting - if this person is legit now just a random scammer and not the OG hacker - is why we haven’t heard of anyone being scammed *yet*. 
 

Whoever is behind that Lily account has been in that telegram group for days and days. If you were an opportunist, looking to make a quick buck, wouldn’t you scam someone quick and get out asap?
 

To counter my own thoughts, I suppose they could be trying to scam people in private dms, and just biding time to do it, but no one has reported anything of the sort.

Imagine if the hackers who ratted out the alleged kid did it on purpose to distract TakeTwo and FBI from the real hacker? 🤔

If it was actually him he’d just use Gofile again. The link was active for such a long time that said files would spread quicker than the site would respond to a DMCA.

Maybe he wants the files to stay up for a even longer time? Afterall the Gofile link only lasted a couple of days.

That new Lily account

 

Hes using broken english with his new telegram, “I try find” instead of “I am trying to find”. For someone from UK and English as first language it seems his  “new” account is being used by a impostor.

 

Or like some other users pointed out, the guy is still out there with the source code and that pdf loaded with spoilers.

He's not from the UK. If its who everyone believes it to be he's Albanian and has been living in the UK for some time.

If this is real then the next load of files have the potential to be be much more serious than some pre-production videos. Also Take-Two/Rockstar will be much more vigilant this time around, they'll have people monitoring the telegram group ready to get links taken down.

Nope not that much. Please refer back to the summary post above, there's plenty to believe that this guy currently isn't even the original hacker or leaker.
