Uber was recently hacked. After that, the company released a statement about improving its protection – it says that the same attackers leaked materials from the next Grand Theft Auto.
This group usually uses similar methods to attack technology companies. In 2022 alone, it hacked Microsoft, Cisco, Samsung, NVIDIA, and Okta, among others.
Reports also surfaced over the weekend that the same people had hacked video game developer Rockstar Games. We are working closely with the FBI and the US Department of Justice on this matter and will continue to support them.
The author of the GTAVI leak himself said that his last job was hacking Uber. In both cases, he fished out information through the Slack messenger.
