          This is a functionality that we have been waiting to get implemented since we started using Confluence v 3.0. We have migrated from 3.5 to 4.2. We have also experienced users uploading zip, exe, scripts and other compiled installers via Confluence, which is hard to manage when you have a large active editor userbase. Developing a plugin will contain the issue and to yet date, no one has commissioned or even tried to offer a plugin for this issue. I think Atlassian should help in directing a more sustainable solution to this missing functionality.

          JIRA team did not close a similar request yet... https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-13684
          the complaints are similar = some (insert a polite word for stupid) users attach .BMP files 2MB each - and blocking/filtering these is really a useful admin feature

          Please, reopen that. This secure funcionality should be default for Confluence, not via payed plugin in my opinion.

          My key customer also think that this functionality should be implemented by Confluence Teams. they thought this is very basic functionality, so it should be supported by Atlassian.
          Hence, this issue should be reopened and handled by Confluence Team.

          Additionally this is an security risk and it's the vendor's responsibility to take care about the product. Since users are able to upload *.svg files or any other file type that is easy to infiltrate, these files could contain malware. No need to explain the consequences...!
