how to deal with a virus file

Hi all,

We have an application in our server which runs through tomcat 6 version.

Clients use to access that applications and will upload some files,through the application which would be saved in server.

My question is if a client uploads a file with virus then how to deal with that particular file.

Do we need to install some antivirus packages in server or do tomcat have any option of scanning the uploaded documents.

Your suggestions please.

Antivirus would be the way to go. You can identify the directories where those files would be saved, and set up antivirus to do an on-access scan for those directories.

Take a look at ClamAV. It comes packaged in most distros.
