What the ?? MIME-type: application/x-dosexec
- Thank you Peter! I believe this is a virus (I didn't bother checking, but it does appear to be a Windows EXE file). Good thing that it ends with PDF so that it won't be executed anyway. I will try to find a way to autoblock PDF files which do not have the PDF MIME type. --Feldmahler 18:37, 18 February 2007 (EST)
- I've just added reverse MIME verification (i.e. files with a certain extension must be a certain MIME type), which, I was surprised to find, was not in the original MediaWiki software. I've also added application/x-dosexec to the MIME blacklist, so that it cannot be uploaded regardless of the extension. Furthermore, I've added a logging function which will log every time someone tries to upload a forbidden MIME type or a MIME type/extension mismatch.
- Should prevent things like this from happening again :) --Feldmahler 19:40, 18 February 2007 (EST)
