Pardon? MIME-types are a standard to declare the type of data,
nothing more, nothing less. If the MIME-type of some data is
declared by an untrusted entitiy, you should not trust this
declaration. If the data is sent by some untrusted entity you
should not trust the data. Usually the data will present more of a
danger than the declaration, but then...
What's your problem regarding MIME-types again?
