I had a customer ask me if pulling data from a Web File can introduce Malware to the System.
Is there a whitepaper / official page that I can give to them that explains that it is safe to do this?
If you are using Web Files, I guess the changes are that you may get malware if it is attached to that file. Never tried this, but would like community experts to suggest.
Just to be clear, I am talking about the HTML "scraping". Surely that only reads the HTML text and doesn't download a file or executes any sort of code from the Web page?
You are right, I am referring to the same, but I am not sure if it invites any malware.
Never gave this much thought, but you are scraping data, and not creating a function in the load script.
Yes. Just a simple data fetch from a website, but the customer is concerned about malware and I need to have some sort of documentation, to prove that no web code gets executed, so no malware can get onto the QlikView server via this data fetch.
