Block 1x1 images

Hi! Excuse me if a word misses an f, my f key is almost stuck.

To dive right into the subject, basically I think such stuff needs to be blocked.
Several users/bots/hackers/whatever are using 1x1 images to inect users' computers with malware.

I wouldn't call this a security issue but a feature. If a site makes use of analytics it may be a good idea to not have this since some analytics systems use 1x1 images to recognize stuff.

Thanks!

Would a simple "Minimum image size", as exists for "Maximum" achieve that?

(Just curious)

Yeah, I guess that will :)

IchBin™:
Why not just remove the option for them to post images in the permissions for newbies or ungrouped members?

Because once they have spammed a lot and got permission to post images they will be able to post them anyway.
