Rockstar is banning people on GTA V for using SP mods.

So it begins, a warning to modders/hackers.
Just a heads up folks, Rockstar is already starting the ban waves.
http://games.on.net/2015/05/rockstar-bans-people-from-gta-online-over-gta-5-pc-mods-but-isnt-clear-why-and-which-ones/

Also in the latest patch, they added some new Anti-Cheats. If you disassemble the game code these two functions can be found:
MemoryRegionCheckDllName
MemoryRegionCheckMemoryHash
They weren't there in the last patch. Apparently they detect injected DLLs (Like the Script Hook and the Mod Menu) and modified or injected hashes and sends that data back to Rockstar. If they so wanted to, they could check that data against a whitelist/blacklist and either ban you right away or queue up your account in the next ban wave. Its still to soon to tell if these functions are only called in GTA Online or effect single player as well. To be safe, I suggest not using any mods at the moment until we get clarification from Rockstar.

Edit:
Haven't verified it if its true myself but this was posted on a modding forum not to long ago:

Some people are complaining of character resets, including having their money reset due to money hacks. Also it seems that some cheaters are forced into private lobbies/servers with other flagged cheaters to keep them separated from the regular public. Some people are complaining of empty public lobbies or stuck on servers with just cheaters. If that was the case, I would say its poetic justice.

Don't forget devs can now ban your games on steam for hacking and cheating.

In most countries, thanks to Steam's and the Developer's EULA, they have the right to revoke your license of the game away. Meaning they can remove all access to the game (Single Player and Online) if they so desire.

They can revoke access, but as long as you dont personally delete the files from your pc, you can always crack it anyway.

No steam anounced today that it has given all devs unilateral rights to ban access to there games for cheaters and hackers. AKA the dev sends a ban list to steam and steam bans those steam accounts.

That is going to be abused to the max by some devs, i can see it already.

Nah i doubt it, You can use those in MMO's and they don't ban you for it so i doubt you'd get banned for using those with a game like GTA....would be one of the dickest moves ever if they did.

Ban the cheaters sure but ban people for using something as harmless as SweetFx? i sure as hell hope not.

Hope to see some topics like 'Help I ve been banned for no reason' and my fav 'Razbante me' ;)

uh yes you can crack the files if you have them on your computer? As soon as you can torrent it there will be a crack somewhere. Your argument is invalid.

This honestly shouldn't be surprising to no one. Anyone tampering is going to get a ban, some people think they just 'slipped the radar' but clearly have never dealt with their system before.

Also the innocent posts are cute, I bumped into a 666 Rank player who even stupidly admitted he modded his rank in a public lobby. Filed a report just to ensure he got what he deserved.
