Description

Hi,

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,

Alan
