    On 7/27/2017, the security plug-in Wordfence sent me the following email (edited for privacy):


    Critical Problems:
    * File contains suspected malware URL: …/public_html/wp-content/sedlex/translations/backup_scheduler_3fb7….html

    http://www dot ufukart dot com

    Today I ran a GravityScan (a cool new service from Wordfence) on the ufukart site. It appears that it has been compromised with malware, thus triggering the Wordfence alert on the link within Backup Scheduler acknowledging ufukart’s translation contribution (into Turkish).

    Please note that this is NOT a report of malware within the Backup Scheduler plugin itself. It is a report that Backup Scheduler has a *link* to a web site that currently contains malware. This link is in a long list of people who contributed to translations of the plugin into other languages, and the plugin author may well be unaware that this contributor’s web site has been compromised.

    Thus I suggest that the link to ufukart be removed from Backup Scheduler to avoid anyone thinking that this plugin is malicious per se.

    I hope that the author of the Backup Scheduler plugin still supports it since, as of this writing, the latest version 1.5.12 dates from over a year ago.

    1.5.13 should deal with it
