This is not "security"
By , for WP 3.5.1

Edit: The plugin keeps improving, so I raised the rating.

Aside from the fact that the "security"-measurements that this plugin tries to implement are a joke (there have been enough cases where plugins in the official repo have been compromised), the "calculation" itself is bogus.

From reviewing the source code (spaghetti/function code) there are issues all over:

  • Does remote requests, where the results aren't tested properly. So whatever comes from the remote source will just be used - which is a security fail at its best.
  • Doesn't use any WordPress coding practice like the list tables API, registering and enqueuing styles, etc. etc.
  • Doesn't handle errors properly. Neither with the remote response, nor with any other WP Error object...

Summed up: Don't use it. This is the opposite of security.
