Attachment hash


Hello there,
I'm actually working on an extension allowing you to scan attachment on several websites (because the user, especially on mobile don't take the time to scan files for viruses). However some websites don't allow search / getting scan report by md5. Therefore I do need to get the sha256 signature.
Which lead to my actual problem : do I have to generate the signature on upload on is there anywhere where that kind of signature can be found ?

The only attachment hashes stored by default are md5. You would have to generate your own sha256 hashes on upload.
