The remote code execution exploit or RCE was discovered last week and enabled cheaters to corrupt and manipulate the accounts of players. If a player was targeted by this exploit, they would get permanently trapped in the loading screen of Grand Theft Auto.

The presence of RCEs has been a long-standing issue with several popular multiplayer games including Dark Souls.

Many gamers are of the opinion that implementing a firewall rule will greatly help in combating this issue.
