Help shape the future of CurseForge!

Regards to the malware. (Security Suggestion)

I propose the implementation of a detection robot on the CurseForge website and app to identify and flag potential malware in mods or modpacks. The flagged items would then be investigated by moderators. Additionally, I believe it is essential to establish a system where only original author names and original mod or modpack names are allowed, along with a verification system for non-flagged content. This comprehensive approach will ultimately protect users from potential security risks and ensure a safer experience on CurseForge."
