EmEditor foreign language websites attacked by hackers

Dear EmEditor user,

On August 12th, 2014, we discovered traces of malicious code in our Japanese EmEditor home page and Simplified Chinese EmEditor home page. Because of this, we temporarily stopped our websites, and we have been checking and cleaning up the sites. In the Japanese site, there were traces where usernames, passwords, and IP addresses of users might have been compromised.

If you have an account in the Japanese site, it is strongly recommended that you change your password. To change the password, please go to the Forums page and log into your account. After signing in, you will see a menu bar showing at the top of the webpage. Go to the top right corner of the webpage that shows your username and in the drop-down menu click “Edit My Profile” .

Currently, there is no evidence that other language sites including this English site was compromised, and there is no evidence that Emurasoft Customer Center was compromised. However, as a precaution, we strongly recommend changing your password if you have an account in these sites. If you share the same password with other websites, we also recommend changing your passwords with those sites.

We apologize for any inconveniences that this situation might have caused you. We are still scanning other language home pages. We will keep you updated if there are any progresses. Thank you.

 

Our servers are not affected by the OpenSSL security issue (the Heartbleed bug)

Many of you may have heard about the recent OpenSSL security issue dubbed “The Heartbleed Bug.” Our websites including Emurasoft Customer Center (https://support.emeditor.com/) are not affected by this vulnerability because this bug only affects a specific set of OpenSSL versions that we do not use on our servers. If you have any questions, please contact us anytime.

Thank you for using EmEditor!

The forum conversion completed!

We have completed the conversion from old forums to new website!

You can see our new forums here. You will see all old messages are converted to the new website.

If you already had an account with the old forums, your account was converted to the new website. However, your password was set to a random string. Please go to the Lost Password and change your password before you log in to the new website.

Thank you!

 

Our website redesigned!

Today, the EmEditor website has been revamped. Not only did we give the website new fresh look, we also rewrote lots of content in the feature pages. Rather than categorizing by major versions, all the feature contents were recategorized with five major feature groups (Coding, Large File Support, User Experience, Extensibility, and Versatility). In this way, the new website allow you to find information faster than our old website.

Other features of our new website include a better Library page, where you can upload your files directly to our server. The library now includes international files because many files can be shared among all cultures. Moreover, you will be allowed add comments to almost any pages in the website.

To post messages in our Forums, upload files to the Library, or add comments to most pages, if you already had an accout with the old forums, your account was converted to the new website. However, your password was set to a random string. Please go to the Lost Password page https://www.emeditor.com/account/lost-password/ and change your password before you log in.

If you didn’t have an account with the old forums, you will need to register to get a new account for our new website. Note that this is different from the Emurasoft Customer Center. To register, please go to the Register page https://www.emeditor.com/account/register/. You will be asked to enter one of your EmEditor registration keys (v10 or later), and its registered email at Emurasoft Customer Center has to match with the email you are trying to register. This allows us to automate the verification process, and completely block spam. If the email address you are trying to register is different from one used for Emurasoft Customer Center because you have multiple licenses to share in a group, please contact us with detailed information for a manual registration.

If you would like to add a unique image to your profile, an “Avatar”, you will have to visit www.gravatar.com and sign up to upload your image file as “Gravatar”. Your Gravatar will show up in all WordPress-based websites including our international EmEditor sites.
