[resolved] [Plugin: WP Responder Email Newsletter and Autoresponder Plugin] Malicious Intent?! (2 posts)

    After I installed the plugin a red message showed up asking me to provide an email address. I clicked on the given link and was redirected to the settings page. In a few seconds I've been redirected to Raj's website (www.krusible.com) where he promotes his services. I clicked the back button in browser and returned to the settings page of the plugin, but it kept redirecting me to the Raj's site again and again. Finally I escaped by going back to the Active Plugins page to deactivate the plugin. To my greatest surprise the plugin wasn't listed at all. What the hell is that? Was that done for a purpose? I had to remove the plugin via FTP.

    I hope there is a valid explanation to this.

    Hi Max,

    The settings page, the dashboard page and the new broadcast page all have images that will show an advertisement for my services.

    I have been extremely busy so I have not been able to get to making this advertisement image so I have placed a 1px by 1px image in its place so that you don't see an ugly broken image icon. It has been that way for a LONG time.

    You can see an empty space below the Address field in the settings page:

    For you to go to my website you must CLICK on the image. There is NO javascript of PHP code that forces the users of this plugin to visit my website.

    Warm Regards,
    Raj
