GTA V’s PC launch has been plagued with issues from the start. There have been problems regarding drivers, download speeds from Steam, FPS hiccups while driving a car in-game, and so on. To add to the stress Rockstar has been under post launch, several users have now reported their accounts being hacked into and even modified.

Users have taken to the Rockstar forums for help, but have yet to hear a response from Rockstar themselves. According to one user, song414, “apparently 2,400+ PC GTA V accounts were compromised. It was an initial list of 198 that was leaked when my account was hacked and now another list of 2,200+ accounts was a day or so ago.”

Their accounts have also begun to allegedly be sold on the Multiplayer Game Hacking website for $15 a pop. The users complaining that they haven’t been able to log in to their accounts have claimed that the sharing site Pastebin was where their account credentials were leaked online.

Users are also taking to Reddit, complaining that Rockstar has done little to nothing in order to help them, with some of the initial hacked accounts occurring several days ago. The numbers, however, have quickly risen over the past several hours.

“One of the biggest problems is how they’re treating us when we ask for help,” Reddit user Styrofoam–Boots said. “Most modern companies who fix compromised accounts deal with these kinds of situations quickly and act like they give a shit, whereas Rockstar has made it clear to most of us that we just have to sit and wait until they feel like quickly checking that our accounts were accessed from unfamiliar IPs in Russia. The entire process could be reversed in ~30 minutes per person.”

  • If it doesn’t involve selling shark cards then Rockstar doesn’t care about it.

    Since i heard about this I’ve been changing my password daily, every time it’s 15 character pass with numbers, lower and top case letters, not losing my money to commie scum.

    Account hacked 1 week ago, stil waiting for a fix (its sitting in the ‘escalated to the proper department’ phase). Its a fucking disgrace, a second GTA IV fiasco, proves them to be very unloyal towards the PC community.

    I got my account hacked 2 days ago, my email was suddenly changed to a russian fellow, I opened 2 tickets to Rockstar and sent a lot twitter messages, attempted emailing them, the best I got was an employee asking private stuff and ignoring me for the last 30 hours.

    I’ve also been hacked but after contacting and getting it back, I used to mod the game and earned RP faster than ever in a legit way. http://wp.me/p5wZh7-i

    Grand Theft Accounts

  • CoiDe11

    Hey, my account were taken somewhere between (29/4) and (30/4). I can sign in to the social club on the website but when im trying to sign in to the socialclub for GTA 5 on the PC i can only sign in with my email and the email password. When im signed in it says that DeeZeO signed in, my name is CoiDe11 on the online and socialclub. After it says that DeeZeO signed in i have to write a activation code to activate GTA 5. I have been playing for about a month now and it does even say that i not have the actuall game anymore on the socialclub. The guy who ownes the DeeZeO account have taken the activation key from my socialclub account which is CoiDe11. I have contacted rockstar but they never respond…
