Mandatory and thorough Security scan and validation on new project submissions and downloads from the app

Following the recent events on the CF page and it's highjacked accounts uploading malware files, it would seem like a really good idea and time to implement extra security measures plus an active anti-malware service running in the background monitoring user activity, databases and other vital parts of your systems.

Also those anti-malware tools that were released to help combat this, should become a vital part of the CF App with an active real-time monitoring database and having an extra option in the 3 dots of a profile or in the App's settings to manually perform a scan when the user feels like it or in case of another similar incident. eg "Security Scan This Instance/Profile" (with a little shield or a magnifying glass over a folder icon).

Also auto scan very thoroughly anything new downloaded through the app. (mods, packs, updates, plugins etc.)

The malware game is changing. We should too!

Stay safe and keep up the awesome work!!
