Would my plugin be allowed in to CodeCanyon?

Hi CodeCanyon,

I have built a WordPress plugin that attacks hackers by sending them a zip bomb. The worst that will happen is a cost to their bandwidth and use up most of their RAM. It may crash their computer. It will definately crash their hacker software.

My question is a difficult one. Is this plugin illegal and if not would CodeCanyon accept this plugin? Please note that WordPress has rejected plugin as they don’t want to support a plugin that causes harm to others, even if they are hackers as they could be using a victims computer.


Hello there,

The best answer you will get is from the Envato team. This is why I suggest you contact them. You can do that here.

Good luck! :slight_smile:

100% no it would not.
