DNS servers still work. All you have to do is have the host spoof the DNS onto the encrypted json file. I've been giving out bounties and still have god mode and snow. All they did was put another step in the DNS process which was bypassed in a night. They can't fix dns hacking unless they take the json file server side which they won't.
the json file is server side, the old hack was to redirect requests for the file from the client (i.e. your console) to the server so that you could feed it a modified file.
The hot patch they did is still vulnerable to man in the middle attacks..
What I suspect they will do is to change the requests from http to https and use SSL to protect the requests, that way, unless you have the R* digital certificate it simply isn't going to work. Least, thats what they should do.
