Hi Monty,

Are you referring to a file upload from a form on your website?
Don't know if you have control over the Apache config, but it's
probably a good idea to set
AllowOverride None
in whatever directory you're sending the uploaded files to (it's
probably a good idea to set this everywhere you don't need an
.htaccess, actually).  Hopefully the script that's receiving your
uploads does some filtering, too...

I know that modsecurity will solve this problem.. but I can't use
modsecurity yet for some reason.

Thanks in advance.
