Is this to prevent downloading?

it is like your files

if you take a look at the file folder then you notice that even a txt file got the filename listed below

Code: Select all


it is probaly to prevent direct acces to the file names or to got a check on them

the files get renamed in the temp folder so it only exist for a XX amount of time (cronjob to delete symlinks)

the video and mp3 will work the same way
and i just think it is to prevent direct acces to them and to prevent executing of the files (if you upload a php file for example)
