    Hi, What is the best way to scan the media library zip files for virus? I want to protect my users incase vendors upload a zip file with a virus and need to learn how to do this.

    Thank you
    Kimberly

    There are quite a few plugins to choose from: http://wordpress.org/plugins/tags/antivirus

    I'd rather not make any personal recommendations here, but I strongly recommend looking through that list for the ones which have been updated recently, have a good rating, and have enough "works" votes at the bottom of the sidebar. It's pretty easy to see which ones shine via that method. ;)

    Thanks, I have wordfence but was not sure if that scanned zip files. I'll ask them.
