Really Simple CAPTCHA
Very easy to bypass CAPTCHA (3 posts)

    Hey there.

    The way you're calling both the image file and the corresponding text file precisely the same name got me thinking: isn't that a very bad idea? It would be incredibly simple for a spambot to simply copy the image URL and exchange the .png with .txt and thus gain access to virtually every CAPTCHA you create with this plugin. Not a good idea, in my opinion.

    Hope that this gets fixed soon. Lately I've been receiving a lot of spam.
