Perhaps, Virus scan them. I would hope most Anti-Virus vendors would have
some kind of APIs, google it.
Is there any other issue that i should consider about too? Oh, Yes. File size is one... there's a limit to the file size that can be
uploaded, you can change that through .config file (I think), but then watch
server's disk space

Sophos has SAVI. The last version I've worked with was COM-based, but pretty
straightforward to use.

Cheers,
