GTA Online has been subjected to a serious hacker attack! Be careful, attackers can access players' personal data
The PC version of GTA Online has been subjected to a powerful hacker attack!
Attackers discovered a new exploit that allows them to interfere with in-game statistics, up to and including the appropriation of in-game money.
Moreover, hackers can ban players or completely delete their accounts. But of particular concern was the fact that the pests gain access to gamers' personal data, which would lead to much more serious problems than losing an account.

According to insider TezFunz2, Rockstar is already working on fixing the situation, but no official announcement has been made yet. That's why the majority of the gamers are of the opinion that it's better not to play GTA Online yet. And if you are a victim of hackers, users are advised to delete Rockstar Games folder from your documents and download the game again.
