    From that one site.

    With the spark in the new method of modding by changing the DNS your console connects to, there is a lot of attention being drawn to this.
    TTG User 'ECS' was in a chat room with a rep from M$, to whom he spoke to about this new method of modding and what could result from it. If you are caught changing your DNS to one of these servers you will be console banned. Believe it or not, the choice is yours, just be careful

    Please take note that if you are "Banned" that you won't literally be suspended from the servers, but rather be placed in the in-game 'Cheater Pool'. If you get suspended from Xbox LIVE this is not from GTA Online glitch, and console bans are also not a consequence for cheating.

    A number of players are reported being "Banned" or reset. Now without proof it is up to you to believe it or not, however, "bans" or resets have been confirmed by Rockstar, so if you have done the glitch keep low for a bit

    To those hosting these "Money Lobbies" a console ban could be a source of punishment. However, if you are one to receive a money boost from one of these people you can probably expect a money roll back, or no actions to be taken at all.

    If you have not done these money glitches but you did grind out on missions while that was possible, you risk no ban at all, so keep playing

    Same with me. However, there is an easy way to get out off the cheaters' pool via the tunables.json file ;)

    Nah you should be fine. The money and/or RP you earned may be reset, but a console ban or anything more severe than that you don't have to worry about.

    If anyone could, help me reset my DNS for PS3 so that there aren't any more mods. I've found that hosting is a bad thing so I need to reset it.

    I used DNS mods, and I got put in the cheater pool, so I got out of it with more DNS changes ;)
    I have gotten these mods stuck on my Xbox though. I have tried everything. I'll just have to wait until it's all patched.
    :(
    Trust me, it gets annoying.

    Clear your cache and set your DNS back to automatic.
    That should fix it.

    Today I found out about "DNS Modding" so naturally I tried it out. I was having so much fun gaining these billions upon billions of dollars up until the point I got spammed by a few people on XBL asking for more and more money. Since they were not in my current session I turned them down. Then they said they would get me banned. I am used to this kinda off behavior and I never believe anything that these kind of people say, but it got me thinking. What are the consequences of using DNS Modding. I have given away at least 50 billion dollars today to various people. I have also accumulated a huge amount of RP. I was level 53 when I discovered this. I am now level 180. I doubt they will permanently ban me from their servers due to the fact that there are hundreds of other people doing this. What do you think are the possible consequences of this if Rockstar notice this change?

    If they see anything out of the ordinary, such as level 53 to 180, they may reset you or suspend you from the servers for maximum of 30 days. That's a first offense. Now, if Microsoft catches you DNS modding, 9/10 out you're getting console banned.

    Okay, just a question. I have been DNS modding for a little bit. Giving out tons of money. I understand rockstar can ban me. I don't care if they do. But if there is a chance I get console banned. Would my profile get banned to? Because I use my profile on my Xbox One and on my 360. If my 360 gets banned it's no big deal cause I have another one. I just want to know if my profile would get banned or not? Thank you.

    From Rockstar's POV, you won't be banned or suspended. Just keep in mind regardless of your intentions, if M$ catches you changing your DNS, they will console ban you.
