Will a website get infected from a user accessing it

hi,

using pix 502, if i port forward a website so that it can be access by users. Would the webserver get infected by a virus for example, if the user's laptop is infected with a virus ?

Thanks

Re: Will a website get infected from a user accessing it

The webserver may get infected as the Laptop used by user is infected.It is better to have an antivirus protection on the webserver which prevents the webserver from any king of infection caused by the virus.Pix itself has an antivirus in it which will prevent any infection to pass through.Pix has the benefits which includes a modular design that allows you to add features such as intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-virus, anti-spam, anti-phishing, and URL filtering.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply.

If the users do not upload anything to the server, they only fill textboxes and select checkboxes to generate schedules. will using the webserver in this way infect it ?

and regarding the antivirus option in PIX, is this available with 515e ?
