Nintendo wii men,

I'm attempting to configure the herpes virus scanner to scan file uploads by customers and am just curious whether they ought to be saved around the server prior to being scanned or if you're able to scan before saving the file? I'm running apache on linux with php.

Any advice appreciated.

Uploads use /tmp, where they must be safe to scan just before using move_uploaded_file to put them somewhere more permanent.

Should you google scan stream for infections you'll find lots of virus scanning devices that appear in a position to scan streams. You will must find an industrial one for this to work (I doubt you will find any free ones, however i may be wrong). Infections are produced daily and updates will be required to stay current.
