    Hi there

    I am planning on using this plugin to bring through a ordering application that runs on another site but both hosted at my work location. I have been hearing that there are security risks with using an iFrame, I would just like to know what those risks are and if the plugin compensates for theses issues?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Using iFrames on a site when you also control the site being served within the iFrame does not constitute a security risk, although it may look like a potential security risk to some users.

    This has been discussed in various places,
