On September 18, 2022, a user named 'teapotuberhacker' posted GTA6-related data to GTAForums, an online forum about the GTA series. The total playing time of the posted video is over 50 hours, and the leak data reveals that it is 'the first female protagonist in the series' and 'some game settings'.

A hacker who stole the data of GTA6 threatened the developer Rockstar Games to leak the source code of GTA6 and GTA5. If your source code is leaked, you risk being vulnerable to hacking. After the data was leaked, Rockstar Games said it was ``extremely disappointed'' that the details of the next GTA 6 game were shared in this way on its official Twitter account, but said, ``Next time when you're ready. We will properly introduce the work,' he said, 'development work on the game will continue as planned,' and issued a statement that the leak will not affect the development of the game.

The ' teapotuberhacker ' that leaked the data also claimed responsibility for Uber's data leak on September 15, 2022.

The London City Police arrested a 17-year-old young man as a person who stole such GTA 6 data from the Rockstar Games server. The official Twitter account of the City of London Police said, ``On September 22, 2022, as part of an investigation supported by the National Crime Agency (NCA), City of London Police arrested a 17-year-old young man living in Oxfordshire.'' I am reporting.

The arrested young man is being held on suspicion of attempting hacking attacks on at least two computer systems. This young man is believed to be one of the hackers belonging to the hacker group Laspus$, which has been attracting attention for hacking companies such as Cisco, Microsoft, Okta, Samsung, and Uber since 2021.
