Security error resulting from uploading an image to my wordpress site

asked May 27, 2012 in Website Builder by Alpha2 (880 points)
When I try to upload an image I get the following security error
‘Security Alert’
The file you’re uploading is rejected by the server.
It contents viruses or trojan that could damage your website
Don’t attempt to upload it again, your IP may be blocked.
I tried different files an I’m getting the same problem. Can someone please help me solve this issue?

This is not a wordpress problem, contact your host provider. They should be able to solve it.
