I have a contactform 7 form on a WP website where a visitor can upload a file as an attachment.

This seems to work fine, but at the same time Admin Tools generates a DFIshield error. Since this also happens when I am testing the feature, I know that it is not a real attack, but caused by the form on the site.

As I said, the form seems to work fine, but is there cause for concern anyway with this message?

can you please install the latest dev release and try again? In the current version, there is a false positive about DFI when a plugin uses WordPress referer field.
