hi i want to ask something that will be tested in localhost..

is it supported by CI to executing an antivirus program on local computer and get the scan result?
i want to try to create a secure upload form.
i need it to make sure that the file that user (in other words is me myself) will be checked first by the antivirus before the file is uploaded to uploads folder.
what i can find in internet is to allow some file types, but based on what i know that some well-known file like doc or xls has the possibility to be infected by virus or something.

Usally that is up to the Server software to handle, most hosting providers have builtin anti-virus protection!
