Fake links, pictures with viruses protection

Post by skia » Mon May 06, 2019 9:17 am

Lets say my forums user verification is good, privileges are set up so only trusted users can send links and pictures on my forum.

However there still is a risk of infection so how can I protect my users from fake links, or pictures with included viruses. Is there kind of third party filtering or link approval service?

I am focused mostly on links and pictures that can be put on the forum.

Or maybe the only solution is to make user verification even more stronger. :roll:

You seem to be over thinking all of this.

Install the forum and enjoy it.

Have you seen this anywhere else already? I mean: if it would be possible then why isn't everyone doing it?

The problem is probably not my English but you do not want to understand correctly.
