Now a 17-year-old boy from London has been arrested. A police source tells The Desk that the boy was arrested on suspicion of being involved in the server breach of Rockstar Games and Take Two Interactive, the companies behind "Grand Theft Auto",  The Desk reports.

On September 18, 90 clips of what were said to be gameplay sequences from the upcoming "Grand Theft Auto" game were posted online.
