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.
