Rockstar has fixed Grand Theft Auto Online's messaging exploits with a new security patch
Update 1.66 for Grand Theft Auto V has landed on PC, adding a much-needed security update that addresses the player-to-player messaging exploit that has plagued the game's online mode for the past few weeks.
Before patch 1.66, GTA Online players could have their accounts corrupted or blocked due to this exploit, effectively making the game unsafe to play online. Thankfully, Rockstar has now addressed this security issue with their latest game patch, allowing GTA Online players to continue playing the game as normal and without any hacking or account corruption concerns.
Update 1.66 for Grand Theft Auto V will be downloaded and applied automatically for all versions of the game though their download clients, be it Steam, the Epic Games Store, or Rockstar's own launcher. Release notes for patch 1.66 are available to read below.

I feel they should have done, but i dont play online due to the issues just modded single player, saying that I have all the RT and reflections and just about every other bell and whistle added sure does look nice
You mean Pascals RTGI ReShade shader ? Or did modders find a way to properly put in RT reflections ?Quote
Would be great if Treyarch would treat BO2 and 3 the same way, but those are old games. They're still not dead though.Quote
