    That plugin is not hosted by wordpress.org. As with themes, you should only ever download plugins from a reputable site. It's just common sense really.

    That's what I would recommend, yes.

    And all of them are sure ?

    As far as humanely possible, yes. If you have any suspicions about a plugin hosted by wordpress.org, you can either post the details here or contact plugins[at]wordpress.org.
