Thumbs down iTrader Quarantined?

I understand a product getting quarantined but what good does it do if no one can reply to the thread and discuss what's going on? When I try to respond to the iTrader thread it says I can't.

So... why was it quarantined? Any plans on it being fixed? Etc?

that is the whole point of "quarantined" no one has access to it.

The email message I got told me it had been quarantined and I should turn it off but not why.

What is the problem with it? Does it have some security hole? Is it causing planes to fall out of the sky? What?

A bit of info would be good.

If it gets quarantined, yes, there is a security issue. And no, you won't get told what exactly it is. That's the policy, and it's a good policy. You don't want to make it even easier to the bad guys by telling them right away what to exploit.

Just last week I received an e-mail about a different mod being quarantined and I could still post in the thread and people using the mod were able to discuss what was going on (not giving away the specifics, but just general discussion). This time around we're cut out and have no source of updates except to wait for another e-mail. I understand not allowing people to know the specifics, but it'd still be nice to somehow have a way to discuss what's going on so we know the person who wrote the modification is doing something about it, is planning on fixing it, and when.

The last time the developer was online was February 8th, doesn't look like this is going to get resolved in a couple of days...

That other mod from last week happened to be one that has it's own forum, so there were other threads that were used for discussion. But it kind of looks like you're discussing it here.

I've been looking through the plugins, to see if I could fix this on my own board, but to no avail so far.

Hopefully the mod developer gets on and releases a fix.

Been awhile and still no fix. This is practically one of the first mods to install on a forum, it's really unfortunate that there's no fix yet...

I sure hope this gets fixed soon, I'd like to add the user rating system and iTrader is all I've found so far.

Planes are falling, I was just flying around Metropolis and had to save a few myself did you see me in the baseball field? I believe they filmed me doing that one!

Kidding but point being, if it's Quarantined no matter the modification in question, there is a good reason.

He did not release the version that was quarantined. Another coder had permission to port it to vB4 and released it. That coder is now responsible for it.
