I have this issue where a plugin mysteriously installed itself. Seems unthinkable but found others on the support forum for this plugin reported the same.

How is this even possible?
Thanks

Update: Found there was a reference to the plugin being installed and activated together with the latest Litespeed Cache plugin without advance notification or permission from admins. Seems a breach of user agreement with plugin developer.
