Automatic AntiVirus check for Uploaded files.

Post by SoftwareDeveloper » Mon Jan 20, 2014 5:16 pm

Hi All,

I just saw a post Dev Update: Uploading & Downloading Attachments (
https://blog.phpbb.com/2013/12/12/uploa ... tachments/) and was wondering if there is any interest in the community for an enhancement request for automatically checking the uploaded file in memory for virus/Trojan/ etc.

I posted this on the original topic but was asked my admin to use the Ideas page instead! Sorry Admin :D

Regards

Virus checking is a good idea if you allow those kind of attachments but some AV products are better than others so which AV to use becomes a matter of preference and personal taste. Ultimately, it's up to the client to make sure. I'm kind of in the middle on this one...

There are a lot of things that are required to do that...

If it is as hard as I think, then better off as an extension.
