It might be too obvious, and too easy.
But it seems to be an Issue.

I tested my Forum and was quite shocked.

When i edit any HTML-File (including Scripting) then rename like test.jpg and upload it as an attachment in the Message-Editor, the Message will be accepted and posted to the forum.

Now if i use IE and click on that link, which shows "test.jpg" the File will be opened and executed !
I tried this with a normal user account.

Now i think it might be a good idea to stop an file being executed. Even plain HTML might be a phishing risk.

I configured all Forums to zero - upload limit.
