Cyberpunk 2077 Vulnerability Warning

CD PROJEKT RED Customer Support tweets a warning that a DLL can leave the systems of Cyberpunk 2077 players vulnerable to remote execution when using mods. They are working on a fix, but in the meantime they urge caution in using external files:
If you plan to use @CyberpunkGame mods/custom saves on PC, use caution. We've been made aware of a vulnerability in external DLL files the game uses which can be used to execute code on PCs. Issue will be fixed ASAP. For now, please refrain from using files from unknown sources.

Running custom DLL files has always been a vulnerability. That's native code, just like an executable. There's nothing new about Cyberpunk in that regard - though I suppose the popularity and newness of the game makes it a very tempting attack vector.

Well, obviously it's not that simple or there wouldn't be a fix for it, which could have been implemented from the beginning.

They probably didn't mention that it been fixed by modders especially when they want to have an official fix, they might not even know that somebody else fixed it.

Because that company is all about communicating with others
you won't find me disagreeing
Just look at the first tweet
"This is comical considering I made a tweet about you knowing this for a week and several youtube videos even claiming the same thing. It took ya a week to warn the community.."

It's was already fixed on the same day it was discovered by modders, specifically Cyber Engine Tweaks.
Odd the developer doesn't mention it was fixed the same day? Giggle
