Spyware that sends Spam Don't Use!
By , for WP 3.6.1

This plugin almost got me kicked off my host for spam. Luckily they traced it back to obfuscated code in the plugin. Don't Use this!

Spyware - don't use!
By , for WP 3.5.2

Following select-command is hidden in the code if the plugin and will be send to http://edo.webmaster.am:

select display_name, user_email from $wpdb->users left join $wpdb->usermeta on ($wpdb->usermeta.user_id = $wpdb->users.ID and $wpdb->usermeta.meta_key = 'wp_capabilities') where meta_value like '%administrator%'

Apart from that it seems to be very useful and it worked properly. Too bad it is programmed to your user data to someones website.

Sends administrator's username, email, hostname to logging site
By , for WP 3.5.1

You should not need the email, username of our blog administrator(s) to track usage. Please consider using a token or other license mechanism.

See http://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/gtw/tags/1.0.1/gtw.php lines 265 - 271.

Line 270 sends base64 encoded [username::email;]+domain to a server at http://edo.webmaster.am. All usernames with meta_value like administrator are sent.

I call this a Bad Thing(tm).
