Matthew Keys, reliable source in the world of tech, certifies that it is indeed the hacker involved in Rockstar business. BBC cyber reporter Joe Tidy also said: It is really very important. We can’t say why due to restrictions… I’m still consulting the BBC legal team, we can’t say more than what’s been said here. »
According to the latest information in the case, he would be one of the leaders of the group of Lapsus$ cybercriminals. He would have amassed more than 12 million euros by hacking various big names in tech. This includes Microsoft, Ubisoft, Nvidia, and even Samsung. However, we must wait for confirmation from the British authorities to be sure.
