    • > /wp-content/plugins/anmiated-twitter-bird/twitterfeedreader.php
  • 1× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_option() in wp-content/plugins/anmiated-twitter-bird/AnimatedTwitterBird.php:90
