Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.12 doesn't address many of the game's problems, but it does target one of the most pernicious.

Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.12 Continues Bug Swatting Crusade

Added to the game Friday, Hotfix 1.12 fixes the vulnerability that exposed Cyberpunk 2077 modders to possible hacks. The patch fixed a buffer overrun issue and removed or replaced non-ASLR DLLs, according to development studio CD Projekt Red.

CD Projekt Red first acknowledged the modding vulnerability Tuesday, cautioning players who use mods and custom saves that external DLL files could be used to execute code on their PCs. Mod support had only been in the game for about a week at that point.

The last Cyberpunk 2077 hotfix arrived Jan. 28 and included a substantially longer list of fixes. It's likely CD Projekt Red highly prioritized pushing out a fix for the modding vulnerability, pushing it to the game as quickly as possible.
