    My hosting service just informed me that there over 300,000 files in the /tmp/ directory at:

    /public_html/wp-content/plugins/really-simple-captcha/tmp

    Any ideas of what might cause this issue?

    Hello,

    We're having the same problem with a large amount of files in the temp directory. Did you happen to come up with a solution?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    Have the same Problem, temp is filled with png and php. How to clean the Temp-file automatically. Maybe in the Code is the mistake, after this point nothing in the php is working well. Whats to do?

    PHP-Code:
    $answer_file = $dir . sanitize_file_name( $prefix . '.php' );

    if ( $fh = fopen( $answer_file, 'w' ) ) {
    @chmod( $answer_file, $this->file_mode );
    fwrite( $fh, '<?php $captcha = "' . $word . '"; ?>' ); /* Mistake? */
    fclose( $fh );
    }

    return $filename;
    }

    Actually, I thought this was resolved, but only this week, captchas stopped working with WP-Newsletter/Mailing-List during an upgrade.

    I've notified that plugin developer.

    Don't know if this is related to Really Simple CAPTCHA or not yet.
