White Screen of Death (WP Statistics)

Last evening one of our client’s website faced the dreaded White Screen of Death. Upon investigation we found out that the error was caused by one of the plugins, called WP Statistics. Apparently, the issue cropped up after the recent update of either the plugin or WordPress. Few other users have also reported the same error.

The error states: Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /…/wp-content/plugins/wp-statistics/includes/functions/parse-user-agent.php on line 123

We have notified the author of the plugin of the error. If you’re facing the same error keep a watch on this thread for further updates on the error.
