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.

This is useful when you are lazy to edit the .htaccess I'm very happy with this plugin. (Funny how some stupid people are trying to pin the blame on this plugin for the hacking damage caused by their poor web server security. They were completely deceived by hackers.)
Our site was hacked and somehow this plugin got installed and removed all security plugins. Where do we report plugins???
I had problems with this plugin my whole site got infected.
