Extensions with .EXE, .MSC and .BAT
Files with extensions that .exe, .msc and .bat are already blocked automatically in Gmail.
The files themselves are not dangerous, but attackers could use such files to infect PCs with hostage care and malware. The change to Google’s purely a precautionary measure is an evolution.
With all of the e-mail accounts recieving commercials to them, this block will be a relief for many. It will also increase the security for Windows users a lot. Great move, we think.
