    Hello All,

    I want to know how to scan the files before uploading it to the
    server in ASP.NET 2.0 application.
    One work arround i thought is to allow to upload in some
    temporary folder then sacn it on server but i think it's not the right way
    coz the infected file will also get uploaded. so, i want to know is there
    any way to do it on client-side? if it's there how to do it? can a
    javascript check the any antivirus say Norton service is running on the
    client's system? Can i access Norton's API to scan the files?

    Thanks & Regards

    In order to virus scan the files on the client you would have to devlop some
    sort of Java aplet or ActiveX control. You best for of defense is to let
    users upload the files into some kind of temporary folder that has no execute
    permision. You could then scan the files there. Always remeber even a
    virused execultable is harmless unless some way is contrived to execute it,
    simply uploading it to your webserver would not surfice.
