Subject [jira] Commented: (FILEUPLOAD-85) [fileupload] Use a secure delete if the file is written to the disk
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2007 20:35:09 GMT


Henri Yandell commented on FILEUPLOAD-85:

My vote here is WONTFIX (despite Ralf's millions :) ). 

If someone contributed a custom FileItemFactory that linked to wipe, that would be cool and
we could at least put it on the website, but no one has in 2.5 years.
