    Hi, this is probably a false positive detection. One way to test this theory of mine is carrying out the following test. Download our plugin locally to your computer then run a virus scan using what ever virus software you have installed in your computer.

    Let me know how you go.

    Thank you

    Hello, this is indeed false positive detection occurred due to the following lines

    264 $logfile = fopen( plugin_dir_path( __FILE__ ) . $log_file_name, ‘rb’ );
    265 if ( ! $logfile ) {
    266 wp_die( ‘Can\’t open log file.’ );
    267 }
    268 header( ‘Content-Type: text/plain’ );
    269 fpassthru( $logfile );
    270 die;

    This issue will be fixed in the next plugin release.
    Thank you for pointing this out!
