plugin "Frontend uploader" (1 post)

    I'm considering using a plugin "Frontend uploader" which allows anyone to upload a photo to my website without even having to enter a password.
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/frontend-uploader/

    I have tried it out and it works well and uploads photos to a special directory within the Media directory for moderation before being published.

    I have deactivated the plugin for now however until I can settle my concerns about viruses and malware. I assume allowing such up-loads opens up my site to all kinds of threats. Should I also install a virus checking plugin and will such a plugin check photos being uploaded for malicious content? Are there other security options other than via plugins?
