Hi All,

Just received a direct email from http://www.tenfoot.co and made me wonder if this is a legitimate system or attempt to hack my website, as apparently the offered extension is for free and claims that will do some good for my biz in about 5 minutes.

However, what makes me concern is the generic look and feel of their website and lack of the contact information and scarcity of the reviews and supporting information about the extension they offer. Any feedback?

Here is the email I received:

Hi,

I just visited **************.com and I think it is awesome.

If you’ve checked your analytics lately, then you probably know that an increasing number of customers are browsing your store through tablet devices, like iPads.

These customers expect to get an amazing shopping experience, just as if they were using a mobile app.

Tablet-adapted websites enjoy the highest conversion rates – significantly more than desktops and triple the conversion on smartphones.

TenFoot creates a tablet-adapted version of your store (integrated with your existing platform), in less than 5 minutes, for free.

I invite you to visit TenFoot, sign up for free and make your store even more awesome.

Sincerely,

Ori Schnitzer

jamestkirk75, you are right to be suspicious of this direct mail campaign. While many great Magento partners offer extensions to merchants directly via their web sites, Magento cannot reliably review partners or extensions that are not also offered via the Connect Marketplace. As such, any extension you download directly from a 3rd-party web site would be ‘use at your own risk’, especially if that extension is not also offered via Magento Connect.

Hi jamestkirk75,

Tenfoot automatically creates beautiful online stores for post-pc devices.
It can dramatically increase conversion rates on touch devices, and I invite you to give it a try.
We are currently redesigning our website, and this is the reason there is not much information on it yet.
You are more than welcome to contact me directly for more details.

Sincerely,

Hi Alex. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I will have our security team investigate. In the meantime, you are welcome to leave a review about their extension in Magento Connect.

Is there anu other development about this extension? I installed it before checking more information and couldn’t see any change on my magento, not even in configuration settings. Now I’m afraid I’ll have to delete that installation to get rid of this. It would be nice that this was a real tool. Any news form Magento security team? Or just words on the wind?
