Updated just now and got a random text file on my desktop called WITH-LOVE-FROM-AMERICA.txt
This happened to me as well. From what I can piece together, it seems like it comes from this NPM package: https://github.com/RIAEvangelist/peacenotwar
Either the Unity Hub or one of it's dependencies includes this package, which seems to copy this file to the Desktop. While I support the sentiment of the above package, I find it highly disturbing that it was added into the Unity Hub, knowingly or not, without explanation or permission.
Same here, found it created it every time I ran Unity Hub. I have since uninstalled the Unity for now. I have had issues with identity theft before and this is not cool.
Here's an article with some more info about it if you're curious. Definitely gave me a compromised scare at first too.
Alert: peacenotwar module sabotages npm developers in the node-ipc package to protest the invasion of Ukraine | Snyk
Appears to largely be harmless, but also intentionally brings in vulnerable code so rather safe than sorry for me as well.
Richard Fine on Twitter: "@hybridherbst @willgoldstone @RatKingsLair Hub team are on it. Hotfix available shortly." / Twitter
edit: yeah thats not cool
gonna take me a unity break for a bit
Thank god I never updated from hub 2.4.5
Has the whole world gone completely cuckoo or what?
Things can happen. And whilst this almost got me into a huge trouble, I dodged the bullet
But yes, maybe giving more attention to security is something we all need to be aware of.
This could have been a disaster.
Thats all you need to know about UnityTech professional skills... Unbelievable!
