Fake links, pictures with viruses protection

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?
