Ubisoft community manager Natchai Stappers has revealed those who have knowingly exploited its first Incursion, called Falcon Lost, will be met with some kind of punishment for doing so.
“Obviously it is against our Code of Conduct and the team is looking into what can be done in terms of punishment for those who have exploited,” Stappers writes in the official forums for The Division.
As of now, those who have hacked The Division in other ways have received a 3-day ban with no other form of punishment, such as a wipe of a player’s stats. Considering that kind of punishment for hackers, we wouldn’t think Ubisoft would punish those who knowingly glitch the Falcon Lost incursion any worse than a few days ban from playing The Division.
Ubisoft is currently working on a patch to fix the exploit many The Division players have been performing since it was discovered. When exactly we can expect the exploit to be patched is unknown at this time.
Bungie’s Destiny has had a number of exploits discovered since its release, which players actively took advantage of time and time again. This marks the first time we can recall a publisher has decided to respond to those taking advantage of an obvious exploit, such as the one in Falcon Lost, in such a harsh way as to punish players. Hopefully the punishment won't be too harsh as we can't imagine many players not taking advantage of the exploit.

Why? The staff made the glitch. They should be held accountable.
Yea. No. You don't want your shit glitched, stop releasing shitty games that are not quality controlled before release.
