    per my host who looked at ftp logs and other records says 80% probability my site was hacked (defaced) due to an exploit of this plugin.

    Very interesting. Did this exploit make it easier to hack into the blog? And can you tell me what the exploit is? I am considering using this plugin and I want to be fully informed. Thanks.

    no way this plugin caused your blog to be hacked. However... If you want to tell me how you came to this conclusion I would be happy to fix.
