django-safe-filefield

build status code coverage pypi pep8 MIT

Secure file field, which allows you to restrict uploaded file extensions. It may be useful for user-uploaded files (attachments).

This package adds model and forms field. What this fields does:

  • restricts allowed file extensions (for example: only *.pdf files)
  • checks file extensions is correct for sent content-type
  • checks sent content type is correct for file content (detects by libmagic)
  • checks uploaded file with anti-virus software

Installation

The package can be installed using:

pip install django-safe-filefield

Add the following settings:

INSTALLED_APPS += [
    'safe_filefield',
]

django-safe-filefield requires libmagic to be installed.

Usage

Simply add field to your model:

from safe_filefield.models import SafeFileField

class MyModel(models.Model):

    attachment = SafeFileField(
        allowed_extensions=('xls', 'xlsx', 'csv')
    )

Or directly to your form:

from safe_filefield.forms import SafeFileField

class MyForm(forms.Form):

    attachment = SafeFileField(
        allowed_extensions=('xls', 'xlsx', 'csv')
    )

Content type checking

To check actual file content type, use check_content_type argument. This will prevent attacker from uploading malicious file just by changing its extension.

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    attachment = SafeFileField(
        check_content_type=True
    )

ClamAV support

Note

To use this functionality you should have clamd daemon.

This package has ability to check uploaded file with ClamAV antivirus.

To use anti-virus protection simply enable it in your form or model definition:

from safe_filefield.forms import SafeFileField

class MyForm(forms.Form):
    attachment = SafeFileField(
        scan_viruses=True,
    )

You can configure some ClamAV settings:

CLAMAV_SOCKET = 'unix://tmp/clamav.sock'  # or tcp://127.0.0.1:3310

CLAMAV_TIMEOUT = 30  # 30 seconds timeout, None by default which means infinite
