    Great plugin & have loved it til recently ...

    Since this last upgrade, I've noticed several foreign IP's trying to hack into the admin areas of my site, through this plugin - I've blocked them & will continue to - I've sent a message to you through Facebook.

    I can't see any facebook message. Please send as much details as possible to me via email so that I can see what is happening.

    @ bcr8tive/anyone with answers:

    This is a bit concerning.
    Could we find out more on this and how it was resolved?

    TIA

    It never got anywhere, we had a quick chat on facebook but I never got any details about it. From the chat log it seems that the requested file from the alleged hackers was utcw.min.js which is a static file, so I'm not sure why they would do that at all.

    For the sake of transparency, here's all the details I've got:

    Hi Rickard,

    Yes I did send you a message back with the details about the .js file and to be honest I seriously do not appreciate a private conversation being posted on an open forum. That's a serious invasion of privacy and I'm very glad now that I didn't go into more detail. BUYER BEWARE!

    I'd appreciate it if you would remove that and you can keep just the info up that you needed which is the info about the js file. You really should know better than that.

    I'm sorry about that, there doesn't seem to be any way to edit/remove comments. I will try to find a way to edit the comment or remove the thread completely.
