Anti-Virus Protection - Web Application

    I am building an application that will allow end-users to upload files for others to download, and as you guys can image this worries me.

    I will be posting these files from the upload stream directly into the database and back out therefore i am not worried about my companies network, but i am concerned with those who will be downloading these files.

    Do you guys recommend anything i can integrate (willing to purchase product but dont have a million bucks to spend) into my site to do scanning after upload? This solution would have to work on a web farm scenario.

    FYI... For our servers we already use Norton to help keep them virus free.

    If you're already using Norton, just leverage the scanner itself.

    Look up Symantec's website for information on telling the scanner to inspect a single file (the path obtained from HttpPostedFile.SaveAs() ) and extracting the result.

    Thank you for the feedback guys, some interesting stuff. I am going to have one of my guys look at this right away.

    If anyone has any other suggestions i welcome them to compare and contrast.
