Will there be any free antivirus API exists ?

  1. Will there be any free antivirus API exists with I can implement within my ASP.NET website and scan files which can be uploaded from the user onto my server? I cannot install an antivirus on my own hosting provider's server simply because they don’t give permission or allow it.

    I would think your web application could invoke a background task to scan a given file or archive using the SYSTEM() call and wait for its return. There are issues of seeing any return code however. The best you might expect is that any infection(s) found during the scan would force the AV quarantine process.

    That would require however, that you know the path to the existing AV program on the webserver.
