Notepad++ hacked by CIA, updated

Recommended Posts

Notepad++ seems to be the tool of choice around here, so I think this news is worth a note.

Last week WikiLeaks released over 8000 CIA documents, some of which document their hacks, and one of which is about hacking computer through Notepad++.

Well, the term "hacking" is a bit liberal in this case, but that's what Notepad++ says in the release note of latest update, in addition to other enhancements.  I particularly love the shift+enter reverse search in search dialog.

Notepad++ won't check for update until you launch it, and updates are not immediately pushed to the updater.  To protect yourself and enjoy new feature, update now!

If the CIA is replacing DLLs on your PC you're already compromised.

 

Destroy the package.

 

I repeat, the eagles are swarming.

Package destroyed, warehouse relocated.

 

Location of the next meetup updated, verify.

 

Rats were scattered to distract eagles, but proceed with caution. Over.
