Cyberpunk 2077: Patch 1.12, available now on PC.

After communicating about this problem on Tuesday, CD Projekt Red is deploying a patch to resolve this flaw.
As updates multiply for Cyberpunk 2077, the list of its issues also continues to grow. The latest episode to date: Wednesday, January 27, CD Projekt Red publishes its site’s official modding tools for the PC version of the game.
However, many modders quickly realize that its tools provide access to a flaw (a vulnerability in the DLL files) within the game that would allow malicious people to add special code lines to their mods and run them on users’ PCs without them knowing.
