Support » Plugin: BuddyPress Group Folders » Security: Check file extensions / allowed mime type

  • Hello Ruuttu,
    here is another patch for a little bit more security: Check the uploaded file against allowed file types.

    inside function find_filename() after line 376:
    $extension = strrchr($name, '.');
    add this:

    /* check for allowed extensions / mime type */
    $ext = substr($extension,1);
    $mimes = get_allowed_mime_types();
    $mime_ok = false;
    foreach ($mimes as $type => $mime) {
    	if (strpos($type, $ext) !== false) {
    		$mime_ok = true;
    	}
    }
    if(!$mime_ok)
    	return false;

  • Great work on these additions, Fee.

    Also we can define some file extensions that can be uploaded to group file folder. Fee’s code can be modified like this(you can define your own permitted file extensions):
    //////////////////////////////
    $ext = substr($extension,1);
    $ext = strtolower($ext);
    $mimes= array(‘rar’,’zip’,’jpg’,’gif’,’pdf’,’png’,’bmp’,’ico’,’tar’,’gz’,’gzip’,’7z’,’doc’);
    $mime_ok = false;
    if (in_array($ext,$mimes)) $mime_ok = true;
    if(!$mime_ok)
    return false;
    //////////////////////////////////

    Hi Rudolf,

    Based on that code would it be possible for you to provide a version with an input field in the gfold backend settings for allowed file extensions?
