Hi,

I'd like to hear of any security issues with file upload, what I can think of include:
1) out of memory issues if the file is too large. If I use the controller element to specify the max file size, if the file is too large is it. uploaded and then aborted when this size is reached or not uploaded at all?
2) uploading files with viruses. I assume struts doesnt have anything to crack open the file and ensure its a rtf?
3) Denial of Service attacks if many files are uploaded at once

Any others would be appreciatred!

thanks,

Susan
