Virus scanning of uploaded files

(Chris Butler) #1

I’m currently looking into integrating Discourse with our existing web systems to provide a discussion forum for our site’s users. One of the requirements of our platform is that all uploaded files are checked for viruses prior to being made available for anyone to download.

Looking through the documentation, I can’t see any way to configure Discourse to use a virus scanner on uploaded files. Am I missing something?

Discourse doesn’t have such feature. You’d have to build a plugin to scan uploaded files for viruses.
