Please support .zip attachments

The forum allows .z, .7z, but does not allow .zip attachments.

Please fix.

Not any more intrinsically safe / unsafe as an other archiving method, and can be scanned. Lack of support just adds to reasons not to participate.

Hello all, 

The type: .zip is excluded due security recommendations. Let me please check internally what could be done about it. 

BR,

Very good proposal. On top of this the 5 MB limit is also a bit outdated. At least we should be able to share zipped example programs to support each other and indirectly ST.

The security issue would be WHAT'S IN THE ZIP, the integrity of the files can be readily established, and the content scanned for threats.

Don't allow them to contain EXE/DLL files, or be password protected / encrypted.

The RAR, 7Z, TAR and XZ archives are supported, but not ZIP because of "security". Also does any of those "security experts" even know that a DOCX, XLSX and PTPX files are also ZIP files with a different extension? @Lina DABASINSKAITE , do you have any clue what level of nonsense you are talking here?

Oh, but it lists HEX as an accepted format - let's try that...

A perfectly normal HEX files "does not match its file extension". One can see those HEX files added to that topic as a TXT files.
