    Running exploit scanner, this came up in one of the plugins:
    base64_decode('CjwhLS0KfCAgY2hDb3VudGVyIBsKfCAgYSBjb3Vud
    can anyone tell what this code stands for and whether any reasons to treat it as suspicious?
    thanks.

    It could be something to be concerned about. Obfuscated code is usually an indication that someone has coded something they either don't want you to change, or don't want you to easily see. How to decrypt an encoded theme

    thanks for the links. The decoder didn't reveal anything significant but I still don't see why it's there.Thought it's safer to delete the plugin all together.

    You're welcome. Better safe than sorry.
