Hello Guru's

We have an application that allows users to upload files. The technology is mostly .Net and some .ASP with a SQL backend. What I would like to know is if anybody has some good ideas on how to scan files that are uploaded for viruses or any other malicious software. Does anybody have a good solution on how to automatically scan for malicious files before allowing them to be uploaded?

Best Regards

Hi. I am accepting this as the solution because the recommended tool does have API support but also because there simply wasn't any other responses.
