Nexus mods hacked?


Recommended Posts

When I try to download smth from Nexus mods, it warns me the site has been hacked and might be corrupted. I know @Flix, you upload your mods to Nexus mods, do you have further infomation? Is it safe to download from the site?

It looks ok to me.  I checked in Edge, Chrome, and Firefox. No warnings or unusual behavior.  Perhaps it's a browser plugin or anti-malware at work?

No, I have only one plugin and it's definitely not from there.

I should've probably more specific: I use chrome and the file in question is this one. The last update from that file is from 2013, I checked and it seems there was a big security issue in 2015 and another one in 2019 on Nexus mods (I joined 2020). I have the unconfirmed suspicion that either chrome or the website automatically give that notification for all downloads from prior to 2015. I took the risk and downloaded the file a couple minutes ago, my antivirus didn't catch alarm so it seems to be fine. But there's still some mixed feelings left.
