CI bundled captcha plugin

#1

Hi,

I'm wondering what's the benefit of saving the image to disk instead of generating it on the fly and set a session?

And even worse, creating a captcha database table to track it.

It looks very stupid to me but I'm sure that's because I don't get the point.

Please explain.

What? Was this plugin coded by a beginner?

By default, CodeIgniter stores it's session in a cookie. So if you store the captcha value in the session, you're sending a clear text version to the user.

The image is generated on the fly - it's done on the same request because of the above reason. Doing it dynamically with a new request really wouldn't change the performance. It'll save you 5kb.

Quite rude, and certainly not the best way to get an answer in this community.

Sorry, I didn't mean to be rude. Thanks for your clarification.
