New Owner Adds Malicious Code to Fast Secure Contact Form Plugin

wordpress.org | Sep. 22, 2017 | 3 min read

Once again, another plugin has been purchased from the original owner, and the new owner has dropped malicious code into it. The plugin has been pulled from the repo, but as usual, if you are using this plugin, you won't be notified that it is f*#ked up! Hope you see this and delete it if you use it.

Sure sounds similar to the Display Widgets guy...

I was thinking that too, desperate measures. Wondering how many plugins have been acquired and will eventually get abused this way.
