As reported by community member Tez2, GTA Online suffered major security flaws with new remote exploits. Cheaters could adjust your rank, unlocks, badsport, give/remove money and even corrupt your account. In today`s patch for PC, Rockstar Games addressed issues with remote exploits and you can now continue your criminal empire in Los Santos and Blaine County.


  • Implemented a new data protocol in GTA Online to improve the security of network sessions and player-to-player messaging
  • Fixed an issue that could result in a player’s GTA Online experience being modified by a third party, including:
    • altering GTA$ balance, RP level, Bad Sport status, and other player stats
    • manipulation of players being kicked or crashed
  • General stability improvements


Social Club will also be going down on February 2, 2023 at 5:00 UTC  to undergo maintenance and is not expected to take long and services will return as soon as it is completed.
