All GTA, all day, since 2012

Rockstar addresses security issues in GTA Online with February 28 update

Rockstar Games did an excellent job fixing GTA Online before the exploit caused more damage.

Rockstar Games released an update for Grand Theft Auto 5 and Grand Theft Auto Online at the very end of the last month. It doesn't bring new content to the games, but title update 1.66 is still important.

Title update 1.66 is available to all GTA Online and GTA 5 players across all platforms and adds a new layer of security following the exploit found earlier this year.

It's worth noting that GTA Online is still very popular, which is why the recent "hack" was such a big deal. Before it was patched out, the flaw gave hackers a chance to control player accounts and even PCs.

After addressing the issue in an official statement, the studio released a fix to put fans at ease.

Now, the title update wants everyone to know that Rockstar is doubling down on security to make sure that it doesn't happen again.

Specifically, one of the highlights of the latest title update for GTA Online is a "new data protocol in GTA Online" that aims to "improve the security of network sessions and player-to-player messaging."

Between the security patch and the improved game stability and performance across all of its supported platforms, GTA Online players should be happy campers.

Rockstar Games continues to make a ton of money from GTA Online every year.

GTA 5 is currently going on its tenth year on the market. This is why fans are itching for the release of the next GTA game. So far, we know very little about GTA 6 but 50 Cent could've broken his NDA by confirming his involvement with a GTA project.
