Hello

I can upload an ASCII file from my computer and save it in the indexer.
=> This is not a problem.

But below there is a problem.
You can still upload files by changing the extension of the file name.

All I want to know is..
Is it possible to upload another way, such as when a file is uploaded with a changed file extension?

I am looking for a document on this question.

Do you know anyone?
