    Hello everyone, I received this email

    From: WordPress.org wordpress.plugins.mail@gmail.com

    Subject: [WordPress.org Plugins] Urgent: Your Plugin Has Been Removed

    Message:

    Dear WordPress Plugin Developer,

    Unfortunately, a plugin you are hosting has been temporarily removed from the WordPress repository. We are going to manually review your plugin because it has been reported for violating our Terms of Service. If your plugin does not get approved then it will be permanently removed from the WordPress repository.

    You can check if your plugin has been approved or rejected at

    DO NOT try to log in here, this is a fake site and they will steal your password. They've copied the wordpress.org site to trick developers into giving their information away.

    If you already tried to log in through that page, change your password inmediately!.

    You've been warned.

    Thanks Jan, missed that one. I've already reported the email address to the Gmail team and the domain to Godaddy support center. Let's see if they take them down.
