Idk but they explained what they were doing on the gearbox forums they said there working on getting every ones badass ranks to match what they had if they were affected by the glitch also who ever lost there ranks get 5gold keys
Basically your points get wiped but the challenge progress is still visible so that is still there. When the patch comes you will have to open each character and if they have less than what you had when you were wiped of your points it triggers the fix. You then do it for any other character you have that is missing points. Load them up, see points come back, save and quit, load up the next...etc.
