This plugin has great functionality. I love being able to quickly move plugins from one site to another. Who hasn’t run into issues where plugin authors get greedy and start adding ads and other crap to plugins. I love being able to move the versions I want easily.
That being said, this plugin does dangerous things to your site. It changes the PHP post_max_size and upload_max_size amounts to 640MB. This is huge! The problem is that the amount of memory PHP needs per instance is in accordance with this number. So setting upload_max_size to 640MB makes it so every user can use up to 640MB of server RAM. It also allows users to upload huge, potentially dangerous files to your site.
I highly recommend deactivating this plugin except for when you are actually using it.
