    Our site kept getting hacked, even after extensive cleanup. Our hosting company finally got involved and said that a malicious IP was "accessing a file in the broken link finder plugin."

    I'm not saying this plugin was the security hole. But in our case it looks like it was more useful to the hackers than to us.

    So... what are you saying? It seems like you are rating this plugin because your site was hacked?
