Use CXS To Block Saving Of Miss-matched File Types

Post by skessler »


I am looking for some added protection to make sure that if someone uploads a PDF it really is a PDF and that it is safe. PDF is one example, it could be one of many common file types. I am thinking that CXS could provide an added layer of protection by scanning a file as soon as it has been uploaded to the server from a form in a web application. It could then quarantine anything potentially malicious even a file that is not of the type matching its file extension. Any ideas on how to pull this off are greatly appreciated.
