Hi guys

I was trying to implement some software to check for vruses before accepting the files for upload, so that the users can download the files risk free.
Would anyone know of any opensource library or any code I can use.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

(P.S) i am using java as the programming language, tomcat as application server and JBuilder as the IDE

You have the Clam project on the SourceForge, just check it on:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/clamwin/

If you want just check it again i«you will find the Linux/Unix project too.

I think that is want you want, you have regular updates, but the only feature that you don't have is real time scanner that is not important for you.

I hope that this help you.
