On XenForo.com a Vietnamese coder named HQCoder released very similar addons to Brivium and seems to have copied code from legitimate developers. If you are running any of the addons by HQCoder then remove these immediately because these may include security risks! last month he released his own version of: Brivium: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/hqcoder-limit-post-link-deleted.136545/ https://xenforo.com/community/threads/hqcoder-limit-post-to-view-forum-deleted.136515/ https://xenforo.com/community/threads/hqcoder-ajax-resource-name-seach-deleted.136497/ https://xenforo.com/community/threads/advance-attachment-download-deleted.136082/ https://xenforo.com/community/threads/hqcoder-profile-cover-deleted.136967/ All these are also offered by the hacker collective Brivium.

This is not the only developer that was reported. The XF team carefully investigates reports before taking such rigorous action. I assume that due diligence is required before removing someone from their platform. Please consider that addons are not reviewed on the xenforo.com marketplace and anyone can post addons there.
