If your WordPress 2.5 installation shows an HTTP Error when uploading files using the media uploader, then this plugin should fix that problem. Simply upload and activate the plugin, then you'll be able to upload files with no problem.

Technical details:

The plugin adds a few lines to WordPress' .htaccess file which deactivates mod_security on the file which handles file uploads.
