This guy is a seriously talented hacker.

 

Lapsus$: GTA 6 hacker handed indefinite hospital order - BBC News

 

Hacked GTA6 with an Amazon Firestick, his hotel room TV and a mobile phone.

 

If he ever gets out a cyber security firm should offer him whatever is necessary, although with severe autism he will unfortunately struggle anywhere in society.

That's a clever kid. Not clever enough to avoid being arrested though 😉

Being medically detained for being "unfit for trial" is a pretty big bar.... and tends to indicate a significant "break" with reality....

 

It is highly likely there is a lot more going on than just "severe autism"

Imo in this case it just indicates a professional diagnosis and assessment indicating severe autism. That alone is enough.

If you read the story in the first post - that did not happen. There was a trial. The person was sentenced to hospital care.
