On Tuesday, Cyberpunk 2077 developer CD Projekt Red warned against installing mods or custom storage files due to a vulnerability that could be used to “execute code on PCs.” However, the studio has quickly turned a solution around, and you should now be able to safely install mods again thanks to the 1.12 hotfix that was released on Friday morning.
Correction 1.12 is now available on PC!
This update addresses the vulnerability that could be used as part of remote code execution (including saving files):

CD Projekt Red has released many quick fixes and updates Cyberpunk 2077 since its release on December 10 to clean up issues with the notorious buggy game. And even the game’s 1.1 update, which was supposed to solve problems, had a big problem – It introduced a game-breaking bug that CD Projekt Red has since solved.
The studio plans to release a 1.2 patch at some point in the future, promising that it will be “a larger, more significant update.” CD Projekt Red also works with free DLC and a free update to optimize Cyberpunk 2077 for next generation consoles.
