Absolute Privacy Plugin Back In The Repository

A few days ago, Sucuri mentioned that the Absolute Privacy plugin for WordPress contained a security vulnerability that would allow the ability to bypass the authentication mechanism and gain admin access to the application, that being WordPress.

Today however, the plugin can be found within the repository again as the security issue has now been fixed.
