Cyberpunk 2077: installing mods creates a really dangerous security hole
CD Projekt Red warned that installing mods on the PC version of Cyberpunk 2077, or using modified saves, creates a major security hole. So it's best to avoid doing this, at least until a patch is released that fixes the problem.

According to the developer's message, the problem would lie in an external DLL, which can be exploited to run code on the PC. In fact, Cyberpunk 2077 players who modify the game risk being hacked themselves. It sounds so good that it almost seems part of the mythology of the game ...



window.twttr = (function (d, s, id) {var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName (s ) [0], t = window.twttr || {}; if (d.getElementById (id)) return t; js = d.createElement (s); js.id = id; js.src = "https: / /platform.twitter.com/widgets.js "; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore (js, fjs); t._e = []; t.ready = function (f) {t._e.push (f);}; return t;} (document, "script", "twitter-wjs")); twttr.ready (function (twttr) {twttr.widgets.createTweet ('1356604047671898112', document.getElementById ('tw_1356604047671898112'));});

Of course the mods coming from reliable sources should not cause any problems, while those coming from dubious sources should be discarded a priori ... which if we want is a valid advice for all moddable games since the concept of mod, but in this case it is worth paying special attention.

Mods are creating more than a few headaches for the developers of Cyberpunk 2077 (as if they did not already have enough), who for example had to prevent that players filled the web with sex scenes with Keanu Reeves. Patch after patch will fix this problem too, guaranteed.
