Details

The plugin check page pulls from its own plugins.mozilla.com however it might make sense to think about merging the plugin block list. 

Or suggest a way that the two collaborate for major plugin updates in the future to avoid https://twitter.com/fcassia/status/616007941167161344

Looks like in this case plugin check needs to be updated, since this is certainly a security vulnerability. As for merging them somehow, it makes sense, but we only have one full time developer on AMO at the moment working around the clock on strictly critical things.
This may be worth considering for V2 of the new blocklist.
