You have few more days to send files having extensions like .js to anybody using Gmail because Gmail has decided that it will block JavaScript file attachments from February 13th and onward.

The type of files which will be blocked from sending are .exe, .msc and .bat. When you will try to attach the .js file with the message then you will be immediately notified that it is blocked “because its content presents a potential security issue.”

Intrinsically, JavaScript files are not harmful, but some users attach them and send them to other people and when you click on it, you are directed to a website and continues downloading of ransomware or other types of malware.

Gmail can even detect JavaScript files even if they are sent ass .zip, .tgz, .gz, or a .bz2. In case, if you really want to send JavaScript to your friend or a co-worker, Gmail recommends you to upload it to the Google drive instead.
