I’m writing here as a Prestashop shop owner. This is my first post in the forum as I have good reasons to express and share my concerns with the Codecanyon community.
The latest PrestaShop release 188.8.131.52 is shipped with in it a new and very threatening popup alert that WILL cause real confusion with many shop owners: the alert message pops up when you try to install a module that was not purchased from Addons, with a scary warning that seems to indicate there’s a high potential for security-related or legal problems. It is a pity that a well know open-source script takes this kind of initiative.
It is a clear attempt to limit competition and digital marketplaces like Codecanyon and Themeforest by scaring users into thinking their shop may be in danger by installing modules like the ones sold at in the various marketplaces like yours.
I hereby ask Codecanyon (and Themeforest) staff to make a clear statement that all the modules are tested and do not contain any backdoors, any viruses, any spam messages, any security flaws and vulnerabilities that could harm the safety of your customers and their e-commerce websites.
