Risks with using Notepad++

  • the resources link on the Notepad++ web site (https://notepad-plus-plus.org/resources.html) seems to indicate that there are code reviews that occur for updates, but I can find no more than this passing reference. How is the code reviewed prior to release and by whom? How do I know this software is safe to use on my network? Before I can allow Notepad++ to be used on my network, I need to perform a proper risk assessment.
