[Plugin: Fast Secure Contact Form] creating php files in temp?

  • Seems that since the latest upgrade to this plugin, it now writes randomly named php files in the captcha/temp/ directory.

    Seems like this is new behavior. I’m thinking the old temp files were txt files. I don’t really like plugins creating php files as I see any new php files created on my server as a sign of a possible hack attempt – txt files are a lot less suspicious and are generally not executable.

    I’ve also noted that some of these temp php files are not being cleared out of the captcha/temp/ directory. They hang around when there is no longer a need for them.

    1. So, is this different behavior than previously?
    2. Does this need to be corrected?

    Thanks.
