    Its a big concern when this plugin is installed, It start sending Similar emails to all admin users. Saying plugin rescued site from this threat from that threat from this ip and that ip. While site is completely new and on demo server which have no traffic at all still this plugin stoping around 150 fake attacks and sending Email about every attack. So many emails go my IP blacklisted from Google.

    As PHP programmer i can let you guys know, Hosting Servers have their own AntiVirus systems unless you are running Dedicated Server on Shared hostings you have limited options to scan or identify the backdoors or threats. This plugin is completely useless i would recommend Simple Captcha or Limit login plugins that’s it. To this plugin’s authors its okay you want to sell Pro version but stop sending Fake emails on threats when no one ever visited the site. Thanks
