There was a vulnerability in WordPress installations that used WP Super Cache prior to version 1.3 or W3 Total Cache prior to version This helper plugin was a stopgap solution for older versions. If you have upgraded WP Super Cache or W3 Total Cache, you can safely deactivate and remove this plugin.

I've posted a "post mortem" of the vulnerability (reasons, fixes, timeline, ...) on my blog.

I will request this plugin to be removed from the wordpress.org plugin repository before the end of April.
