Can addon mods have viruses or malware?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible that when downloading a mod, it could have a virus or malware?

I would think with ill will or with stupidity, but since 2001 i havent encountered a mod with either.

A mod can trigger your antivirus or another program to think its a trogan, i've ran into that before, their usually false flags.

    So what did or are you downloading that gives you the idea that it may have a virus or malware?

I only get mods from steam but just curious.  Probably an inventive way for a hacker to get you to download it.  Hopefully steam takes care of protecting from that.
