#1 Postby jcoby » Jan 12, 2007 4:53 am

would it be possible to add support for reporting the file's mime type to the url_post page?

Yes. I've just implemented MIME type detection. Check it out in upcoming XUpload Pro release.

This is not working properly.

If I rename a file extension, the MIME is always reported as that of the new file extension.

So if I rename a .PDF to .TXT, the MIME is always reported as "text/plain," though the content is a .PDF.

If I check the same file's MIME with PHP, it correctly reports it as "application/pdf."

So the point of checking MIME with XUpload is lost -- XUpload is reporting the MIME by file extensions -- and is potentially a security risk.
