Just a Warning:

The sophisticated hacking group known as StrongPity, (aka: APT-C-41 and Promethium), is circulating laced Notepad++ installers that infect targets with malware. What they did with this is not new and has been done by the same group previously with WinRar.

I know some of you that use this and if we have any coders that come here, and want to use that program, just beware and use some caution. Since these apps are free, download them from the source website and not some random 3rd party site that a search or another random site points to.

This warning is really for all programs as it can, and has been done in torrents, 3rd party sites, ect.
