    Anyone know if this plug-in will be updated to be made secure?

    If not, what are you all using to replace it?

    I have posted a status update to the following thread

    I was away on holiday when this issue was reported to me and thus it has taken a while to get to the fix out. This has now been done and the plugin updated to version 1.3.11

    Unfortunately as there was a delay in my update the plugin was withdrawn temporarily from the repository. This should hopefully be restored soon and you’ll be able to access the update.

    Regards the criticality of this vulnerability, as the malicious actor would have to have both access to your WordPress dashboard and that too be a privileged user (by default this level is contributor), providing you trust your users at this level, the risk will be minimal.

    The update you seek has been released, hopefully the repo will be unlocked soon so you can get access to it. Apologies for the delay in the fix.

    THANK YOU

    Update not appearing yet in WordPress repository yet but will keep an eye out. Thanks for the reassurance that, in the interim, the risk is minimal.

    As re-enabling the repository requires a full review of the plugin, I’ve been asked by the WordPress team to bring a few other elements of the plugin up to date before they re-enable the repository. As the plugin is over 10 years old I suppose this is to be expected.

    I therefore just wanted to post a further update to users here that this is in hand and to apologise for the continued delay in restoring access to updates.

    I’m working on the updates this weekend and hopefully we should see some progress as we get into next week.

    The plugin has been re-activated in the repository, thanks to all users for their patience
