    Thumbs up Upload Filter Information

    As you might know I recently secured our upload center by building in a filter script.
    Our filter script checks every file while uploading.

    The filter script remove all zip files containing one of the forbidden extensions to protect our members from downloading dangerous files.
    To really block all dangerous files, compressed files within a zip file are also removed.

    If you upload a zip file containing on of the below forbidden extensions you will get the error message "Error: The file you've uploaded contained a potentially dangerous file >filename< and has been rejected by our filter!"
    If you get this error, please remove the "potentially dangerous file" from your zip archive and re-upload it.

    Additionaly "exe" and "msi" are blocked if the filesize is below 120KB

    The maximum filesize for any archive is 2MB

    Re: Upload Filter Information

    Due to abuse by various users 3 new forbidden file extension are added to the filter.
    Zip archives containing files with the extension .htm .html and .shtml are rejected!

    The maximum filesize has been increased to 5MB.

    Sincerly Yours,
    MainFrame

    Again due to abuse the filter have been updated.
    .exe .msi are now also blocked!
    In addition to prevent additional abuse the extensions .mht and .mhtml suggested by urmans are also blocked!
