Restrict attachment file types

Is there a way to restrict the types of attachments people can upload i.e. .exe files? I found some articles on the "Attachements Filter" plugin, but it doesn't look like it exists anymore.

Hallo Chris

There isn't a way to restrict the attachments people can upload, by blacklisting a file type. I've found this request on our issue tracker, closed as "won't fix":

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-6931

There are some suggestions that may be useful in this post:

I hope this helps!

Cheers, Sarah

@Sarah Maddox [A - do you know of anything that will allow custom attachment limits by file type? So I could restrict quite low the size of an image that slows down page load yet keep the limit higher for necessary file attachments?
