Protect uploads

Description

The uploads directory is where the files of the WordPress library are stored. Unfortunelty, this directory is not protected. A person who wants to see all your library could list it instantly going to : http://yourwebsite/wp-content/uploads . This plugin will hide the content by adding an index.php file on the root of your uploads directory or by setting an htaccess which will return a 403 error (Forbidden Access).

  • Depending on your server setting, the htaccess option could be disabled.

Available languages :

  • English
  • Français
  • Español
  • Italian (thanks to Marko97)

Installation

  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

Note : GD library is needed and being able to create a .htaccess file in uploads directory.

Do not download. The plugin has been changed not too long ago and it now infects your wordpress installation, and possible spreads itself to other sites if you are on shared hosting.

Am avut mai multe site-uri gazduite pe un server cu spatiu in share. Unul dintre clienti a instalat acest plugin si din site-ul respectiv a infectat TOATE site-urile gazduite pe acel server. Schimba datele de logare ale contului ADMIN, modifica in style.css de pe la linia 441 in sus cu cod malware si se transmite in tot serverul de gazduire. NU INSTALATI !!!
