Security Issues for Public Uploader? (2 posts)

    Hello, I read an article recently about security issues with using the Public Uploader plugin. He noted that because users can know the file's complete URL, the web server will be happy to serve files regardless of their moderation status.

    Now this article goes back over a year ago, so perhaps these issues have since been addressed. I'm just curious if there's any current security concerns I should be aware of today by using the NextGEN Gallery Public Uploader plugin.

    Thanks!

    The plugin author also commented on the original article.

    The problem is apparently fixed.

    Is that what you were referring to?
