    We have some code in the Twitter widget to get rid of some particular Tweets that were causing issues a few months ago. The security scan is picking up on our code.

    We've removed the code for this since it is not needed anymore. When the nekt release comes out, the security warning will go away. Until then, this isn't something to worry about.

    Hi Tim...

    Thanks for the follow-up. I saw the line in the code that was setting it off. Some spammer site URL.

    Again... thanks for the reply. You guys are the best!
