Why does it say "Last Update: 14 Apr 2017" ?
Is this information inaccurate?

Hmmm... somehow I thought this was about this mod: https://vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=241481

Oh it's because I followed the link in The Last Superman's post (#8) and assumed it was the mod in question, my bad.

I wouldn't use the mod in this post either.

Can someone audit this plugin for potential malicious code?
The nonsensical results of the plugin and the apathy of the author are worrying me a lot.
Here's a mirror : https://www.sendspace.com/file/05icvb
I did a light audit... I looked through the main php file and searched for some common means of collecting/sending data and didn't notice or find anything suspicious.

It's by no means me saying it's safe to use, but there is nothing obvious to me to worry about.

I have no intention of using or installing.

Just gave it a check;
there's a link to a dead site in the xml description of it. (fuelmyforums)
and a small .js from the google cdn, all is fine here. (<script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.4/jquery.min.js"></script>)

The fastest way for someone who isn't used to coding imho is to look is to open the files and do a search for "//" without the quotation marks and you'll easily find any links which could be used to send info to a external site.. Or just give a quick look through of all the files like I did.

Those up to no good could purposely hide this kind of code though, so be aware if you don't find any it doesn't mean it's 100% safe.
