[Plugin: ShareThis] Security risks with Share This

  • If this is an issue for you I would suggest using the “classic” version like I do which is totally contained on your own server. I agree that It’s a risk–more so from if hackers were to get control of their site and could send malicious stuff out than they themselves doing it, but it’s still a risk when you give up control like this.

    Unfortunately, using an older version doesn’t appear to be possible in WP 2.5. All it shows on the plug-in page is a notice saying you have to upgrade – there’s no option to activate the plug-in. 🙁

    wrong. I’m using sharethis classic 1.5.2 without any issues on wp 2.5

    What is the security risk with the new version 2.3?

    Anyone know of any security risk using this with WP2.7?

    I’d also like to know if the security vulnerability is still present in WP 2.7 or the current WPMU install as of Jan 2009… Please let us know, if your in the know for either of these installs. Thanks
