Roll back plugins or WP.org take over control of a plugin when malicious

  1. Tom van M


    Now a plugin like Display Widgets gets deleted from the repository. Users don't get an update in wp-admin about this.
    It would be great if we could roll back the plugin to a previous version.
    An other possiblity would be that WordPress.org take over the control of this plugin and force an older version or a new version without this issue.
    In the case of Display Widgets 200.000 users have this plugin on their website without a could alternative. A plugin with this amount of users need an other approach then just deleting the plugin from the repository.
    Thanks for your time!

  2. We're working on that. It requires a lot more work than you'd think and, in the case of Display Widgets, the latest version is SAFE. 2.7 is a SAFE version.

    We took it over and updated it.
