  • Virus scaner for user submiotted content?

    I'm creating an web application that will allow users to upload files to the server for others to download. I'm a bit worried that this could be a vector for the spread of viruses.

    Is there any virus scanner software installed or available for your servers?

    I have a uk linux reseller hosting account but I would want to scan for viruses, browser exploits and media player exploits affecting multiple platforms.

    Is it possible?

    Hi Noel,

    We do have ClamAV installed/configured on all of our Linux shared/reseller hosting servers which takes care of the viral/infected files.

    Furthermore, we do have CXS ( ConfigServer eXploit Scanner ) & mod_sec ( ModSecurity: Open Source Web Application Firewall ) which scan the files in runtime & as uploaded from the web applications.

    Please let us know if you need any further information
