For PC users, Cyberpunk 2077 hot hotfix 1.12 fixes a sensitive vulnerability related to installing custom save files and modes. The company recently warned players against installing modes due to the issue, which has now been fixed. Developer CD Project Red last month released modding support tools for Cyberpunk 2077. Changelog says that the hotfix addresses this vulnerability that can be used as part of remote code implementation. Cyberpunk 2077 Update 1.12 is available for download for all PC users.
Cyberpunk 2077 Hotfix 1.12 Update
CD Project has announced the availability of Hotfix 1.12 for Cyberpunk 2077 on PCs through the game’s official Twitter handle and its official blog. The update fixes a buffer overrun issue as well as mod and custom save file vulnerabilities. Changelog also mentions the removal/replacement of non-ASLR DLLs.
A few days ago, Cyberpunk 2077 warned users about vulnerabilities in external DLL files that hackers could use to run code on a user’s system. At the time the company said it would release a solution, but users were advised to refrain from using files from unknown sources. The issue arose just days after Cyberpunk 2077 introduced official change support to allow players to customize and personalize their gameplay experience.
The hotfix was only rolled out on PC, but there is a good reason behind it. This update was specifically published to solve the problem of bringing modes to PC for Cyberpunk 2077 for Some documents. This hotfix basically allows the modes to work more accurately than it does now.
Given that modes are not currently available on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms, it is understandable why this hotfix did not come to consoles. At the moment, not fully mode support seems to be coming to consoles as well. If they did, CD Project Red would make sure to include this patch from Get-Go.
