From Wordfence: 404 to 301 Plugin Considered Harmful
Just wanted to pass along a warning from Wordfence about the 404 to 301 plugin.
It looks like one member created a training on the plugin, so I figure there may be some people here using it.
I posted the warning on the training here as well: https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/training/404-to-30...
Edited to add updated info below:
As usual, two sides to every story. And here is the plugin author's explanation: https://thefoxe.com/blog/404-to-301-plugin-detected-by-wordfence-here-is-what-actually-happened/
If true, he let himself get duped by another coder and made a very dangerous and naive decision to share access.
However, it appears that he has corrected things.
