Rockstar Confirms GTA 6 Leak
Rockstar, the developer of the popular Grand Theft Auto series, has confirmed a recent leak regarding their upcoming game, GTA 6. However, the situation is even worse than initially thought. In a media release, Rockstar confirmed that they had suffered a network breach, which they are working to isolate. While the leaked footage is real, it is also very old.
GTA 5 Source Code for Sale
What’s even more concerning is that the alleged hacker has announced that they are willing to sell the source code for the current, very active version of GTA 5 for a staggering six-figure sum. Third-party scammers, who are pretending to have the code, have already made at least one sale, meaning that people are willing to pay exorbitant amounts for something that they may not even receive.
While it’s hilarious that someone has dropped 100K on a scam, it’s also an alarming reminder that people are willing to pay substantial amounts of money for illicit goods. More worryingly, what else did the hackers access? Rockstar confirmed that they had a network intrusion, which begs the question of whether the hackers also accessed client information, login credentials, passwords, and other sensitive data. While no information has been released regarding these possibilities, it’s crucial to take precautions immediately.
Take Action and Protect Yourself
Everyone who has a Rockstar Social Club account or a Rockstar Warehouse account should immediately change their passwords. It’s also essential to change passwords for any other accounts that use the same passwords, including Xbox Live, PlayStation Network, Gmail, Outlook, and PC accounts. Failure to change passwords could leave individuals open to an attack or account hijacking.
To check if your passwords have been compromised in any attack, not just the Rockstar breach, the video recommends using the Have I Been Pwned service immediately. The link to this service can be found in the description below. Stay safe and protect your digital assets by changing your passwords today.
Overall, the leaked footage of GTA 6 may be exciting for fans, but the situation surrounding the breach is a reminder of how critical digital security has become in today’s world. Protect your accounts, your data, and your reputation by taking precautions and changing your passwords regularly.
