I'm afraid there is no fix, it's well and truly buggered.

You can always play online private mode, that's works fine provided you haven't played in a buggered up public session first.

This is just about the only time I've heard of a major title having multiplayer permanently damaged without a fix. One would think that if whatever the modders did to the servers they could restore them periodically to at least get some uninfected servers online most of the time.

Or am I misreading what the issues are?

I think there's just too many modders out there that just do whatever they do over and over again...so it is useless for them to keep repairing the servers.  The modders are in complete control and it's just up to them to say when it will be broken or fixed and they do it.  Long time ago it used to be where they could spawn horses and make it snow and other simple things like that and the game ran just fine. But, they weren't happy with that...they have to go in and change the files - the actual programming of the game - to play like they want it to.  To me, it just doesn't seem like a server problem... it is a problem with modders taking over the game and controlling it from their computers and homemade discs. The game only works when you are in a private session (without modders) and have not been in an infected public session...it's the same server, right?

I don't know...I could be wrong, I've just heard some modders and modders' friends talking in parties. They are absolutely obsessed with modding and all the wars that come with it.  I hope I am wrong and when Red Dead gets on the One I hope that Rockstar can come up with a permanent fix.

We can only hope. Both that RDR gets transported to the One (haven't seen any definitive proof that it will be one of the titles coming next month when backwards compatibility gets launched), as well as the servers get some sort of protection against the modders.

Its surprising that a check that no game files have been edited doesn't get performed on people joining and therefore prevent them from joining or something. If only the modders put that talent into something useful.

The game is still working on 360, for now.

I really don't know what would possess someone to break a game just so that nobody can play it.  Some people really need to get out more.

If rockstar or the Microsoft enforcement team had addressed the modding issue when it initially became a problem years ago it probably wouldn't have come to this.  The modders would either be console banned or forced to play fair in fear of being console banned, long before this...whatever it is...was discovered.
