It was this week that CD Projekt Red said that players should be careful when downloading mods and modified games for Cyberpunk 2077 after discovering one of these games that has been found to be capable of damaging systems. Apparently, there is a bug that allows hackers to hide malicious executables with certain mods. The Eurogamer medium echoed it and speaking with the developer explained that it is linked to external DLL files, which contain data that allows several programs to run at the same time.
