Scan uploaded files (ASP .NET - FileUpload control)

Created: 21 Feb 2012 | 1 comment


Currently we have Symantec AntiVirus v10 installed on our web server and are looking to implement an ASP .NET solution where web users will be able to upload files through an FileUpload control. The idea is to ensure all uploaded files are scanned before they are moved to the relevent file servers.

Could you please advise on how best we approach the antivirus scanning, can we configure Symantec AntiVirus v10 in a way that it scanns any new uploaded files? Or may be a particular folder.....Or shall we consider using the SDK to do the scanning programatically?

Many Thanks,

SAV was designed to interact with the file system of the OS.  I would recommend to look at using the SDK for Scan Engine.  This will allow you to write your own connector that interacts with the Scan Engine.
