Rockstar has released a new GTA 5 patch designed to hit GTA Online cheaters squarely in their unscrupulous undergarments.

Update 1.09 promises improved anti-cheat measures while also providing fixes for several GTA$ and RP exploits. The former likely involves sweeps the developer regularly carries out to check there’s nothing crooked going on with GTA Online’s player transactions. They apparently work through a system of  ”in-game automated detection, examination of suspicious gameplay statistics, and also manually-reviewed evidence submitted by the Community”.

As our mothers told us, cheaters never… eh, something, something.

Lets hope these measures level the playing field as we all await the much anticipated first proper wave of GTA 5 story DLC.
