GTA Online tipster ‘TezFunz2’ has warned players over a new hack that is capable of corrupting the game and also has grave effects on a player’s PC. Hacking has been a huge issue for GTA Online. Hackers have plagued the game with cheats that can give them an advantage over other players. Well, 2023 doesn’t seem to be any different.

However, the GTA community is furious about the situation yet again due to a new cheat code that allows hackers to completely delete characters from the game. This can ruin hundreds of hours they have put into the game.

Remote Code Execution hack raising concerns

The insider issued a warning for players to remind them that they should play GTA Online with a firewall at all times if they want to be clear of anyone jumping in their lobby and getting them banned as well, or suffer being hit with other penalties.

“New extreme exploits have appeared allowing cheaters to remotely add/remove/modify your stats and permanently corrupt your account,” TexFunz2 announced. He also emphasized that players should offline entirely for the time being if it’s possible for them.

“The exploit is partial remote code execution. Paid mod menus are racing as we speak to abuse this to a further extent. This could transform into something much worse to extend beyond a game and affect your PC.”

The insider also said that this is “at the top of the highest priority tasks internally right now” for the game publisher Rockstar and developing a full Remote Code Execution could add “legal pressure” to the whole scenario.

Players should note that these hackers aren’t required to be invited into a session to join it, which is what makes using a firewall even more important to keep safe from potential hacks. Overall, it might be safe to stay off servers entirely until Rockstar gets a hold of the situation.

How to register as CEO in GTA Online?

If players want to register as a CEO in GTA Online, they are required to fulfill some basic prerequisites. Firstly, they are required to have an executive office of their own. Buying one of these could cost a lot, and the cheapest one will still cost players at least $1 million. The costly ones can go up to $4 million, and players will get the option to choose from four distinct executive offices.

  • $1 million – Maze Bank West
  • $2.25 million – Arcadius Business Center
  • $3.1 million – Lombank West
  • $4 million – Maze Bank Tower

Once players have bought the office space, the next thing they are required to do is to register as a CEO. The process is fairly simple, all players are required to do is open the interaction menu in GTA Online. Then, they need to navigate to the “SecuroServ” option from the same menu. This will offer players with additional choices, so they have to navigate to the “Register as a CEO” option and click it.
