    here you recommended flamingo plugin to use with contact form. - BE AWARE phishing scheme

    After installing I've been contacted by my hosting provider Network Abuse Department and they said that my account has been implicated in a phishing scheme

    and i had to remove next files

    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/update.php
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/logon.php
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/NBmain.html
    wp-includes/js/scriptaculous/Challenge.html

    mass mailer needs to be removed
    wp-content/plugins/flamingo/black.php

    shell
    wp-content/plugins/flamingo/blackenemy.php

    So i have a very bad experience with this plugin and do not recommend it

    The package of the Flamingo plugin doesn't contain the file named "blackenemy.php". The issue is only happening on your host, and it is not the plugin's problem.
