Potentially unsafe

Last revised:

Confidence: Medium
This plugin has been given a short, targeted code review.

Before using this plugin, you should very carefully consider its potential problems and should conduct a thorough assessment. Read more about this recommendation.


The plugin wasn’t updated in two years, and it seems to be abandoned, but they are still taking money from their premium plugins.
The code is really poor and too big to be reviewed properly, and the scan seems to suggests that there is PHP object injection, unsafe cookie creation and some sanitisation functions that are not inherently safe.
Suggestion: find an alternative
