    Nice overview guys.
    Thanks for the time spend to look into our code 🙂

    A quick answer. Yes – currently we are not providing updates to our database, because of major upgrade in our service and plugin.
    Our goal is to double the number of vulnerable plugins data that we’d captured…however, as mentioned on our plugins info page – for a *FREE* plugin, this is a major effort and that’s why we had delayed the delivery of the new set of data and our newest versions.

    Oh and last but not least, our site is with lowest priority. Gathering vulnerable plugins, organizing them and testing our plugins is always and always would be first. So, no – our website would not get any new stuff, until we get our main plugin to a state which it is used, working perfectly and creating value for users.

    Thanks again!

    We’d googled a bit and … we’re not really happy with the approach you are having towards sites/services/plugins which are somehow in a competition with the ones provided by your company.

    As a result of your actions, a lot of people would be misguided and in a risk of NOT using plugins, services, sites or other companies, which can help them mitigate risk for their websites.

    It is VERY misleading to just say: “Hey, you don’t have data for those X plugins”.
    The importance and the value of our plugin (and dataset) can’t be measured by just checking X plugins.

    Last, but not least. This behaviour (randomly posting “this does not work! stop using it!” for 3rd party plugins and sites (from what we’d seen by simply googling “White Fir Design”) that are a competition to your plugins and services with the idea to advertise your own product is a very, very, very childish, misleading for the users and unprofessional.
