While cheats and hackers very rarely cause more than a minor annoyance, Grand Theft Auto Online is currently the victim of a dangerous account-banning exploit.
A new GTA Online exploit lets cheaters mess with everything from stats to corrupting your account which may result in your account getting banned or deleted from the game permanently.
The glitch is a "partial remote code execution" that is getting abused and some are paying to find out how bad it can be.
The insider theorizes that the exploit could negative affect PC performance, which is why most are avoiding GTA Online at the moment.
Even the makers of anti-cheat tools don't know what to do at the moment and are advising the same thing.
It's unclear who is behind this exploit but Rockstar has yet to issue a statement addressing the problem.
Due to its prevalence, we can expect Rockstar to be all-in on finding the reason behind the exploit and in issuing a patch.
