Why you should not download illegal plugins or themes

Why you should not download illegal plugins or themes
datum-geschreven 26 Feb 2024

Everyone knows that there’s often a catch behind things that are offered for free, and the same applies to Nulled websites that provide free plugins and themes – they can be included in the list of scams.

These websites offer paid scripts that have been hacked and no longer require a license. It might seem tempting, especially if you want to test a paid script before purchasing it.

However, I strongly advise against downloading plugins and themes from illegal websites. These scripts not only contain simple pieces of extra code that can expose your website to hackers but also include sophisticated code that puts the entire server at risk.

The scripts are designed to execute a function for every visitor but remain dormant when you’re logged in, making them difficult to detect with security plugins like WordFence.

In summary, choosing cheap or free options can ultimately lead to costly consequences and invite troubles.
