Problem WordPress Plugins

Here is a list of plugins which according the experts at Wordfence could cause your WordPress site problems.

They are all no longer maintained by the developer and have vulnerabilities – If you do currently run any of these plugins on your site here’s what to do:

If the plugin IS NOT marked with an asterisk, Wordfence suggest you disable the plugin and then also remove it from your system. It may well be worth trying to contact the plugin author and ask if plugin has a vulnerability or not.

If the plugin IS marked with an asterisk, you can disable and remove the plugin. Then reinstall it and you should have a newer version. Wordfence have not audited individual plugins for security so we can not verify whether a vulnerability has been comprehensively fixed.
