You should definitely install the new patch 1.12 for Cyberpunk 2077. Because without it, it is possible for hackers to gain access to your PC.
Be sure to install the new hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077
CD Projekt Red describes the hotfix for Cyberpunk 2077 (buy now € 48.85 ) as follows via Twitter:
"This update resolves the remote code execution vulnerability, including savegames:
– A buffer overflow problem has been fixed.
– Non-ASLR DLLs have been removed / replaced. "
Just a few days ago, the company announced that you should be careful about downloading and installing mods and savegames from other players. Because these made it possible for hackers to gain access to your PC. This would have made it possible for malware to run on the computer. The company has now responded with this hotfix, which closes the said security hole. The community has made the developers of the action role-playing game aware of this problem.
Apart from the things mentioned, the hotfix does not change anything. That means, if you are waiting for major changes, adjustments, improvements or optimizations in Cyberpunk 2077, then you need a little patience. CD Projekt Red is already working on the next major update to remove further bugs from the game and, above all, to improve the performance on PS4 and Xbox One. It is not yet known when the next patch will appear. A lot has happened with the last updates. Cyberpunk 2077 runs better on consoles and bugs have also been fixed. Still, there is still a lot to do.
