WinScan2PDF

#1 Post by Kea » Tue Dec 11, 2012 5:35 pm

allclownsareevil wrote a comment that made me search for jpg files saved by WinScan2PDF. Very deeply buried in "C:\Users\u\Lokala inställningar\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Programdata\Temp\" I found ~tmp~winscan_to_pdf_2.jpg, a picture (dated 4 months ago) showing an extremely personal letter from my doctor, fortunately on my home computer. This is a very real security risk. Wouldn't it be great with a warning in the entry for WinScan2PDF?

Probably best to contact the author and ask why their application is saving outside of the application folder. I know I would want to know.

@Kea: I've added a note to the entry but, like guinness, I think it would be best to contact the developer to alert him about the problem (http://www.softwareok.com/?seite=Kontakt).

I don't think this saying is just limited to Sverige. :mrgreen: But thanks for contacting the author.
