Permanent bans are a possibility.
By Matt Porter

Ubisoft Massive has responded to issues with cheating in The Division, and is going to take steps to combat it.

First of all, a new detection system has been implemented to catch players using cheat engines in the game. This is already starting to take effect, and Ubisoft will be handing out the largest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the next few days.

Players caught cheating will be given a 14 day suspension if it is their first offense. A second offense will always result in a permanent ban.

Ubisoft will also be clamping down on players using bug exploits. All known exploits will be kept in public forum threads, and new ones will be quickly confirmed. If a player is caught repeatedly using the exploit, there is the possibility of character rollbacks, account suspensions, and permanent bans.

Ubisoft assures players who accidentally encounter bugs during normal play will have nothing to worry about.
