    Edit: *Drinks much more coffee*

    Also please be aware that these support forums are for, well, offering support to others and asking for support. This is not the place to promote your plugin, site or services.

    Edit of the edit: On further inspection of that plugin I found this line.

    $result = wp_remote_post( 'http://www.icegram.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php?action=get_products_latest_version&uuid=' . urlencode( admin_url( '/' ) ) . '&requester=' . get_option('admin_email') );

    Your plugin harvests site admin emails during the upgrade check. On a scale of 1 to 10 for Bad Thingsā„¢ that is a easy 9 possibly a 10.

    That alone makes me recommend that no one download or use your plugin.

    Thanks for the heads up, I see it has been taken down. That is much worse than 10 for me.

    It also breaks the law (CanSpam and EU Data Protection)

    Imagine if you used this on a client site and made them admin, they then got spammed by this author.

    With all the wordpress hacking going on this is very nasty coding.

    I am no fan of admin-ajax.php either, slows sites down and as you can see poses a security risk.
