    BEWARE to install this plugin – it BROKE my site.

    I installed the plugin and as soon as I verified an email address the whole site started to redirect traffic to 127.0.0.1. Spent many hours to fix it. My backups were also deleted so I could not restore them. I am not sure, if it injected a malware in my site.

    I deleted the plugin but that did not fix the issue. Then I deactivated every single plugin on the site and re-activated all of them to fix the issue.

    The reason it happened was that this plugin started sending un-necessary traffic and submitted many failed login attempts. Since, site had tight security, it blocked the IP address permanently. Since, I installed only this plugin that day and the behavior started only when I clicked verify email address, I believe that problem is with the plugin and not something else.
