    I’ve used this plugin in my set of default plugins for years. Even when a (really) long time without any updates didn’t feel too good, i just finally decided to not use it anymore, since it started sending false google safe browsing alerts for all of my sites.
    so long and thx for all the fish!

    Unfortunately, I can confirm this behavior. For the last three days I have received a “Safe Browsing Alarm” for the websites I maintain.If this can’t be fixed via an update, I will have to look for an alternative.

    Or is that even the tactic behind it, as a hint that the plugin should not be developed any further?

    Hi @getupworks,
    hi @michael-luther,

    we are still maintaining this plugin. Unfortunately we missed the deprecation of the version 3 of the safebrowsing API which is why you (and I think all people who enabled this feature) are getting all the false positive warnings.

    I filed a bug on our Github repo for this if you want to follow it:
    https://github.com/pluginkollektiv/antivirus/issues/42

    I’m deeply sorry that we haven’t done a better job here, but unfortunately we make failures and miss things. And after Sergej gave the plugin in our hands there was the pluginkollektiv which tries to maintain all the plugins. Unfortunately we are just a bunch of volunteers and there is no budget and spare time is rare, so sometimes things like this happen.

    Hopefully we will fix this soon.

    If anyone want to help us. Pull Requests on our Github repo are more than welcome! 🙂

    Thank you very much for your understanding!

    All the best,
    Torsten

    Dear Torsten,

    today a new update has been released, which also brings the Safe Browsing API v4 that should fix the false positive email notifications.

    Big thanks to you and all people of the pluginkollektiv! That encouraged me to make a donation of 10 EUR. And I hope I’m not the only one!

    All the best,
    Michael

    Hi Michael,

    yes, thanks to a great team we could release the fixed version in a very short time frame. 🙂

    Thank you very much for your donation! Very much appreciated and already shared with the team.

    All the best,
    Torsten
