The update was announced via Twitter and is now available for PC, correcting two elements that could potentially be used to activate harmful files hidden within mods.

Earlier this week, CD Projetk Red alerted Cyberpunk 2077 players to a vulnerability that could expose the security of their machines, after the game’s modding community reported the failure.
Now that the flaw is fixed, players can now feel more at ease using mods, without fear of compromising the security of their computers.
This is the second ‘hotfix’ after update 1.1, introduced after responding to another bug that prevented players from making progress in history.
