I am the community manager for Pods we were made aware of your evaluation
by a user who reported it in our GitHub issue tracker. Our leader
developer, Scott K. Clark, has responded to your claims, which we do not
consider to be fair, here:


I would encourage you to contact the developers of plugins before releasing
vulnerability reports. This sort of vague report doesn't help us improve
our plugin, something we are constantly doing based on input from users. It
only serves to potentially confuse users.

Take care,
Josh Pollock
