Fundamentally Insecure
By , for WP 3.5.1

The plugin relies on a remote host, which makes it fundamentally insecure. No matter how well the code is written, all it takes is a man in the middle attack and the entire stack is compromised.

It would be better if the generated code was done on the server, and provided on the server like the boilerplate generators. Having a plugin to do it is opening up a security hole.

Hyperbole
By ,

You guys know how a SaaS service works right? This plugin interacts with a SaaS service. That in and of itself doesn't make it malicious.

I haven't used or looked at the plugin, but the mere fact that it transmits and receives data to a 3rd party service as part of the functionality it provides does not make it malicious.

The plugin itself states that it's a SaaS solution. It interacts with a SaaS service to provide the functionality it provides.

Long story short: Don't spread hyperbole unless you know 100% that the intent is malicious.

Don't use this plugin
By , for WP 3.5.1

The first (and biggest problem) with this plugin is, that it doesn't generate the code with the plugin code. The plugin is just a proxy that calls a remote server that produces some code and then downloads it into the WP installation. So the owner of the remote server has your installation in his hands. He could send you any sort of code he wants, opening backdoors, hijacking your complete installation.

The other problem is that the code of the plugin is crap. It takes any incoming POST response and just uses it without validation or sanitization. But this is just another security concern.

Long story short: Don't use this plugin. Simply don't.

Franz Josef Kaiser, "Reviewing a plugin with 1 star without having it in use or inspecting the code is worth nothing." That's what you did.

You did not review the code it generated. Just looked at the dummy front end and labeled it malicious.

First of all it is SaaS service and the plugin is a dummy front end. it is a collection of forms. Its only purpose is to send app data to the SaaS service which generates pure WP API code. It is not the only plugin functioning as SaaS frontend in the repository. We believe it is a game changer. It simplifies so many things.

How do I know? Our company have been using it for 6 months for our clients. For your knowledge we also employ security experts who check every code we sent to our clients.

Secondly, Wp App Studio is an open source plugin, if you like to improve the code, post your code and ask them to review it. But don't write BS here with some knowledge you had.

Have something to say, share your "immense" knowledge with us and give specifics so that they can fix in the next release.

Long story short: It is open source, man. Being a hater helps no one.
