Unsafe File Types
Unsafe File types for E-Mail
The following list was posted by Microsoft at Support.microsoft.com.
According to Microsoft, "The following list contains attachments that are considered unsafe:" for Microsoft based PCs, in addition to being able to distribute Viruses, these files types can contain destructive payloads and therefore are not permitted on SpamZapper® filtered Email systems by default. While you are able to override the default settings, these file types are excluded, as they are the easiest for Hackers and Malware Writers to distribute their payloads with. These are some of the reasons we filter these unsafe file extensions from our Email.
We plan on implementing a customizable Web Page for our on-line customers to permit them to recieve these file types in the future. However, all default properties use these file types as guidelines from Microsoft as a starting point.
More Information about Microsoft Office (Outlook) can be found, Outlook E-mail Security Update.Frequently Asked Questions.
The SpamZapper® implements these file types as Bad Extensions by default. Instructions on for modifying these rules are available upon request.
