Uploading files should be considered risky

This plugin will facilitate uploading files to your server, which by nature should be considered risky.

MAKE SURE you have taken the proper precautions in protecting your uploads folder from prying eyes and malicious intent. At the very least make sure you've uploaded an empty index.html or index.php to prevent directory listing. Front End Upload takes a number of precautions to hopefully prevent unwanted file uploads but please be mindful that server configuration can help prevent unwanted outcomes.
