Identifying and blocking prohibited content items in a content management system


To identify whether a content item is prohibited, a content management system can generate a content item fingerprint for the content item and then compare the generated content item fingerprint to a blacklist of content item fingerprints for prohibited content items. If the generated content item fingerprint matches any of the content item fingerprints included in the blacklist, the content management system can determine that the content item is prohibited.
