This is not the first robbery committed by the pirate become a teenager. The latter intends to start negotiations with Rockstar in pecuniary order: no offer of less than 5 Bitcoins (€92,000) will be accepted. A robbery that will not be the first of this cyberpirate and / or his group: just yesterday, it was Uber that published a press release which claims to have suffered an illegal intrusion into its servers. The VTC company indicated that Microsoft or NVidia had already suffered such damage. However, the attack suffered by Rockstar recently is similar and may lead to the same robber.
