Safe to download Wordpress plugins from here?
Is it safe to download Wordpress plugins from here?

What if they have a virus or any malicious script? How does one find about it?

I personally will NEVER install anything I get from a site like this one without running it trough a virus check.
As far as callbacks and /or redirects go you will have to have some knowledge about coding and have a look around in the code.
There are however some FREE plugins that can do some of that for you.

If you have a good hosting with virus scanner you can install what you want because if the plugin have malicious code inside the av will block that file.

Unless you understand how plugins work and what's in them, I probably wouldn't risk it

I wouldn't do it. Anti-virus software isn't even close to being 100% effective, especially with zero-day items.

As far as 'testing on a site I don't care about' - if you use shared hosting, you could still affect every site on the server, including any that don't belong to you.

Antivirus check first seems to be a good solution.
