• This plugin has been exploited by bots or scripts that dump a bunch of bogus Russian email addresses into the subscriber list. It was fixed once in a recent version, but was quickly exploited again. Until this is successfully resolved, I could not recommend the plugin because I have to disable it every time it is hacked.

    In Email Subscribers Free we have taken care of the majority of security issues.
    But still, there could be a few ways that surpass our security measures.
    To combat that, you could try out Email Subscribers Premium which had the CAPTCHA feature.
    It helps achieve 100% security.
    Hope this helps you.

    You are forcing people to buy premium subscription by using spammers. You can add Captcha to free plug-in as well. This is a security issue.
