Cleantalk have advised me that their scanner has detected Malware in a WordPress Plugin identified below.

This plugin does not appear on my website's Dashboard list, so I presume it is part of the website itself.

Is someone able to provide me with more information about this warning, please?

Kind regards,

These files may not contain malicious code but they use very dangerous PHP functions and constructions! PHP developers don't recommend to use such code besides it looks very suspicious.

Hi @manalan77 - sorry for the long waiting time.

As far as I can tell this never was a real plugin but some malicious code that found it's way into your installation. Definitely it's not some core file, therefore I'm closing the case.
