    This plugin plays around with PHP’s post_max_size and upload_max_size. It changes them to 640MB, which is huge. By default, most sites run these values in the 2-16MB range.

    This has safety and memory implications for the site. It makes it so people can upload huge files to your server. Also, php has to have enough memory for the entire upload, so this allows every user instance on your web site to use 640MB of server memory. This is terrible behaviour for a plugin that is only for administrators.

    I recommend that no one leave this plugin active. Only activate it when you need to use it.
