    Hello.
    I got this too. Avira detected Virus or unwanted program ‘JS/Zhelatin.zb [virus]’

    detected in file …\wp-responder-email-autoresponder-and-newsletter-plugin\viewbroadcast.php.
    Contains recognition pattern of the JS/Zhelatin.zb Java script virus.

    Any responses about this?
    The plugin has great functionality, but I need to know if it can be used without harming the server and such.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I’m the author of the plugin.

    This is because of the base64 decode function in the viewbroadcasts.php file. It is used by most people to hide unwanted code in web pages. Often times it is used to download viruses and trojans through web pages.

    That there is no malicious code in the plugin at all.I have removed the base64 decode function in the coming version and replaced it with a iframe load. Please make an upgarde to the new version to overcome these issues.

    Sorry, I meant to say. It is widely used used to hide malicious code in malicious scripts.

    New version is fine.
    Thanks!

    Thanks a lot Raj,

    The plugin is great, has a lot of features and is very complex.
    It saved me a lot of effort finding and eventually paying for an external email marketing provider.

    Keep up the good work.

    Flo
