Just an FYI for everybody concerned about malicious plugins. I’ve seen a massive uptake in spam user accounts purposefully impersonating well known developers. For example:
- Real: OkevinO Spam: 0kevin0
- Real: CodeSponge Spam: SpongeCoder
I think a lot of these accounts got banned, but I just wanted to make people aware because one of my friends fell for this and got into trouble with the moderators because of a server side backdoor being used to put items in his game.
Please double check the names of who developed the plugin you’re installing and check if it’s a deliberate copy or not.
It’s happening again.
