In the absence of more information or official confirmation, this is all we know so far about the operation.
A few days ago we learned that the FBI was underway with an investigation to find the person or persons responsible for these latest cyberattacks on Rockstar Games and Uber, with information pointing to the Lapsus$ group, which has already carried out attacks in the recent past on companies such as Nvidia , Microsoft and Samsung. It is also unknown if the arrested person has anything to do with the group, although Matthew Keys points to yes.
