Hello!

We just released a tiny patch to resolve a security issue tied to the way LUA libraries were loaded for mods.

- Fixed a potential security issue.

We hope that this fix will not have any effect on save games.

Phew, good on Paradox for acting so quickly. Saw a warning on the Equestria at War Discord and didn't know what to think. Haven't been playing HoI4 since then, just in case.

Although it is interesting that (either I am blind or) this wasn't discussed at all on this forum.

I found records of the exploit being showcased from January 2019. Did it really have to go mainstream for it to be fixed?

I copied the black ice team's message onto the hoi forum yesterday. Didn't generate much discussion.
That was a quick fix though, thanks.

Good thing this happend so quickly. As far as I know this issue is also a problem for EU4, CK2 and Victora 2, right? Or I may have misunderstood something. Will there be fixes for these games as well?

EU4 and CK2 also got the patch already, so if your list is correct only vicky 2 doesn't have it.

How did the exploit work in the first place?
As we know, most games of Paradox provides a very flexible and powerful mod ability.
But, if some bad guy use it in an evil way.
They can make a virus/spyware mod or even turn your machine into a bitcoin miner(by using mod as an entrance, then download the mining software running in background.And then, profit! ). :p
Anyway, it's important to make sure you only use mod from reliable source. (same as any software you download from internet.)

I hate that there are multiple hackers every MP game I join. Basically one out of every 5 players is hacking. Maybe u should do something about it cos its bad and its getting worse.
