WP Sanitize WordPress plugin review

WP Sanitize or Simple Optimization - who's the author

WP Sanitize or Simple Optimization

I’m interesting in WordPress security plugins. Recently, going through WordPress plugins repository I found one which looked promising. “WP Sanitize checks for potential security vulnerabilities and keeps your WordPress database optimized”, – this is quote from its description. I decided to test it.

Author: Mr. Vibe
Version: 1.0
Download link : wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-sanitize/

I thought, how’s that possible with size 2 Kb only to check security vulnerabilities? May be it uses some web service for that? What critical data plugin sends to external site then in order to make security test? So I went through the code and discovered that there is no any real or potential vulnerabilities checking in the current version of plugin.
