• Used it at work. A week or two ago we updated everything and suddenly got a malicious attack redirecting the site. Waited two weeks to update this on another site. Guess what. 10 minutes after the update happened it did it again.
    I contacted support and the offered to SELL ME more stuff to clean it up. TOTAL SCAM. Updates allow them to create back doors and do malicious redirects so they can sell you more stuff which probably does the same thing.
    DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT. IT IS A SCAM PRODUCT MEANT TO OPEN BACKDOORS IN YOUR SITE. SO here i am on a Friday after hours cleaning up their mess for them yay.

  • The code is open-source here [1].

    Feel free to inspect it and if you find any piece of code that allows us to inject malware into your website, I will personally flight to whatever country you are and give you all my salary for one year. In fact, if anyone is able to find a backdoor in our code I will give the same prize.

    Let’s review.

    Used it at work.

    OK.

    A week or two ago we updated everything and suddenly got a malicious attack redirecting the site. Waited two weeks to update this on another site. Guess what. 10 minutes after the update happened it did it again.

    And you sought support somewhere. Cool. You did not seek support on these forums, there’s no topic you created for this.

    I contacted support and the offered to SELL ME more stuff to clean it up.

    And here’s where you went wrong in your review.

    I contacted support and the offered to SELL ME more stuff to clean it up. TOTAL SCAM. Updates allow them to create back doors and do malicious redirects so they can sell you more stuff which probably does the same thing.

    Unless you are a their customer, and you may be it’s unclear, then they do not owe you the time of day. You may want to set your expectations correctly. You are a user and you are not a customer. It’s a big difference.

    There is no back door to this plugin and it’s not responsible for the compromise of your site.

    This plugin is an interface to a service. When you install it and visit the dashboard settings page, it clearly says this.

    We inspect your WordPress installation and look for modifications on the core files as provided by WordPress.org. Files located in the root directory, wp-admin and wp-includes will be compared against the files distributed with v4.9.5; all files with inconsistencies will be listed here. Any changes might indicate a hack.

    It’s inspecting only. It’s to let you know if your site is good. That’s all. If it find a problem then you’ve got some work to do.

    Except for de-capping your review, I’m leaving it as is. Don’t yell here as that’s considered rude. People do read these reviews and replies. This isn’t a failure of this plugin, it’s a user who didn’t understand what this plugin does and how.

    Very nice response. Encouraging to see this forum is moderated so well. Good job.
