I am a fan of the Plugin Inspector plugin. One of the things that I read on the site of our firewall provider was to check the code of our plugins one by one.
This plugin helped me a lot to achive that faster. Whith these data I even could made a risk analisys of our plugins. That helped us decide to stop using a plugin that seemed too vulnerable compared to others. Later we found out it was cataloged as unsafe by JetPack, Accunetix and many others.
Making a risk analysis is time consuming but worth it. That’s why I want to request the developers to consider this feature request:
The idea is to present a risk score in the plugin list that would for example be calculated like this:
Risk Score: Number of Low risk findings + 5* Number of Medium Risk Findings + 10* Number of High Risk Findings + 10* Number of Deprecated Findings
That and a way to order the list based on the score, which would easily make it clear which one of your plugins you should start inspecting right away or look for alternatives.
