WARNING! This extension will sneakily inject obfuscated yanz backdoor PHP scripts in your document root and will hijack your Wordpress site. THREE of my customers websites were hacked this week and the ONLY extension that they all have in common that recently got installed is Disable XML-RPC-API. They literally have nothing else in common and they don't know each other nor use the same theme nor even the same Wordpress release. BE WARNED.

Spammy admin notices. Bye Bye.

Any plugin that shoves global notices on every admin page to cross promote their other plugins, can have a one star review and get uninstalled. Bye.
