GTA: source code sold, distribution of a hundred videos…
It is one of the video game cases that is agitating the world of justice at the moment: that of the massive cyberattack suffered by Rockstar, the father of Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption, which occurred almost two weeks ago. The hacker (teapot of his nickname), which wouldn’t even be of age, had then stolen from the studio a hundred GTA 6 development videos that he had shared. Disappointing sequences for some fans who felt that “graphics were the first finished thing in a video game“. A statement that did not fail to provoke many developers around the world, then sharing the alpha versions of their games
On this subject, he also steals the source codes of GTA V and GTA VI: the backbones of video games, that allow computers and consoles to translate them.
Something very important therefore since it often contains the way of developing of a studio. Moreover, it can also be exploited in order to find security vulnerabilities to allow hacking or even cheating. On this subject, teapot allegedly sold the GTA V source code hours before being arrested by the police. An arrest which sees him appear before the Highbury Corner Children’s Court in London.
