According to this Reddit thread, packet encryption has now gone live on some regional servers in Escape from Tarkov. The packet encryption should disable the publicly available radar hack.

What is the Escape from Tarkov radar hack?

Before the update, which should have removed the radar hack, the hack was publicly available. With the hack, on a second PC screen, you could have the map open of the stage you’re currently on. The radar hack showed the player on a second PC screen where everyone and everything was on the map. This meant, of course, that you could see where everyone was on the map. You could, therefore, actively avoid opposition players or head towards them knowing exactly where they are. Thankfully, the hack appears to have been fixed and should no longer work.
