GTA 6 Hacker Handed ‘Indefinite Hospital Order’

There is an indefinite hospital order for Arion Kurtaj, the hacker who leaked Grand Theft Auto 6 clips. After the controversy over the hacker group Lapsus$‘s attack on Grand Theft Auto 6, the judge in charge made a clear decision based on Kurtaj’s continued threat to the public.

There was a leak of the GTA 6 trailer in December, which showed a lot of information about Rockstar’s highly anticipated action-adventure game. The game takes place in Leonida, a made-up state that is based on Florida.

This new GTA game breaks with tradition by giving us Lucia, the first female lead character in the series. Some hackers, including Arion Kurtaj of the group Lapsus$, attacked Rockstar before the GTA 6 trailer leaked a day before the game’s official release.

GTA 6 Hacker Handed ‘Indefinite Hospital Order’

FBI says 18-year-old hacker Arion Kurtaj, who is part of the international hacker group Lapsus$, has been sent to the hospital permanently for his role in leaking Grand Theft Auto 6 clips.

The judge said that Kurtaj was a high risk to the public because he spoke about his cyber skills and how much he wanted to commit cybercrime. Psychotherapy showed that he “continued to say he wanted to return to cybercrime as soon as possible.” His drive is very strong.

In July, a group of psychiatrists said this GTA 6 hacker couldn’t stand trial because he or she has autism. Unfortunately, the hacker could not get away with anything. He will stay in a secure hospital until doctors decide he is no longer a threat.

During his time out on bail, Kurtaj used an Amazon Fire Stick to break into the Rockstar Games database and steal 90 clips of GTA 6. I broke into Rockstar’s internal messaging and told them, “If Rockstar doesn’t contact me on Telegram within 24 hours, I will start releasing the source code.”

In the past, Lapsus$ became famous for going after big tech companies like Uber, Nvidia, and Rockstar Games. According to reports, the latest hack cost Rockstar development $5 million to fix.

Kurtaj’s defence, on the other hand, said that the leak didn’t hurt the company because the Grand Theft Auto 6 trailer was so popular that it broke YouTube views records.

He kept saying he wanted to return to cybercrime as soon as possible. He is very motivated.

A hacker, also 17, who was a member of Lapsus$, was found guilty in the same trial of stealing data from big companies and holding them hostage for $4 million. Kurtaj is now serving his sentence.

It’s still unclear if other people are involved in the GTA 6 hacker attack. Even though it could be bad for Kurtaj’s mental health, his sentence should stop him from doing similar cyberattacks in the future.
