Malware inside themes & plugins
  08-10-2020, 05:51 PM
I have seen the possibility of malware being active after a certain period, for example, some downloaded torrents which seemingly have only videos but afterward being tested positive for malware (without updating the library of the antivirus).

What about plugins and themes here, any idea if they're tested or not, or how to check for malware - did any of you encountered any issues while using/testing them?

Just like with anything when you don't purchase the real version you always take a risk. That's why testing out in non production environments is always the best option.

Always test the themes and plugins in a test /local environment.
