How to virus scan a DOCX Document in Javascript

A good virus scanning solution can be absolute gold, saving you from all sorts of trouble down the road. So how can we go about bullet-proofing your system? Easy, let’s employ an API.

Let’s begin by importing our client with this script tag:

<script src="https://cdn.cloudmersive.com/jsclient/cloudmersive-virus-client.js"></script>

This allows us to call our function, like this:

var CloudmersiveVirusApiClient = require('cloudmersive-virus-api-client');var defaultClient = CloudmersiveVirusApiClient.ApiClient.instance;// Configure API key authorization: Apikeyvar Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';// Uncomment the following line to set a prefix for the API key, e.g. "Token" (defaults to null)//Apikey.apiKeyPrefix = 'Token';var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveVirusApiClient.ScanApi();var inputFile = "/path/to/file"; // File | Input file to perform the operation on.var callback = function(error, data, response) {if (error) {console.error(error);} else {console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);}};apiInstance.scanFile(inputFile, callback);

That’s it! You’re done. This function comes with over 17 million virus definitions and receives continuous updates from the cloud. Your malware worries are over.
