">As of 08 May 2018, the Nexus has changed some site security to come into compliance with the new "European Union General Data Protection Regulation" (EU GDPR) rules.  This breaks older versions of NMM and is usually reported as being "blocked by the Windows firewall" or causing a "script error" installing mods.  You will need to update it from [http://github.com/Nexus-Mods/Nexus-Mod-Manager/releases/ NMM on GitHub] or this [http://www.nexusmods.com/site/mods/4/? Nexus NMM download page].  Check the version numbers between those sites and use the latest (v0.65.4 at this time).  Please see [http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/news/13481 this Nexus site news article] for details.

A Working "unofficial" fix (confirmed) to login to Nexus with MO (v1) or older NMM versions without updating is available in this Reddit thread:
[http://www.reddit.com/r/skyrimmods/comments/8ibbu4/classic_login_fix_for_mo1nmm_no_update_needed/ Classic Login fix for MO1/NMM].<br> Note: this "fix" reverts to using the older, unsecure API at a fixed, no longer used IP address (instead of the address returned using DNS), and thus negates the EU GDPR standard.  It could get shutdown without warning 25 May as that is the EU deadline for compliance and Nexus is hosted in the United Kingdom.  Use at your own risk.

Some people are finding that even after updating NMM to v0.65.4 they still get a "script exception" message when installing some mods (such as UIO and MCM).  This seems to be resolved by this suggestion from user '''ElysianMod''':
