Unknown hackers have violated the popular, open source, text editor, Notepad ++ website and have attempted to mislead site visitors to give them the credentials of their accounts at Facebook. It is believed that software downloads were unaffected. The site seems to have come back.
When someone visited the site at the end of last week, there were images of the attack and at the same time a pop-up window appeared, asking visitors <...>
to connect to Facebook. It seems that hackers used the official Facebook API, trying to access their user accounts Facebookwho visited the site.
Users who may have entered their credentials may have allowed attackers to access all of their account's features, such as personal information and the ability to post messages to their profile. In this case, users should visit Facebook and refer to their account settings to delete these permissions. Changing your account password is not enough in this case.
