The news comes a few days after Uber revealed that the hack on its systems—which the Rockstar hacker also took credit for—was being investigated by the FBI (opens in new tab). Keys reports that the 17-year-old’s arrest by the City of London Police was “done in concert with an investigation conducted by the FBI”. He adds that the police are expected to release more information on the arrest later today, and that a statement from the FBI is also possible.
