Similar the Gmail users cannot be able to attach a .js file. An in-product warning would appear that explains the reason for the restriction of javascript files.Google

If the Gmail user tries to send a Javascript attachment after February 13, then the user would get a warning alert automatically that says the message would be blocked for the security reasons.

The warning message would read as “there were some reasons why you might see “the message was blocked since its content presents a potential safety issue’ error in the Gmail.

Gmail Displays The Reason For Its Blocking The Javascript Files

Google had also listed some of its reasons why it had blocked the use of individual attachment files that including it’s compressed form like .bz2 or .gz files or when those files were found within archives like .zip or .tgz files as they might be the documents which contain the malicious macros.

Google has also blocked the archive files whose listed file content was protected by a password or whose content includes any password protected archive file.

One of the possible reasons for the Google to block .js attachment files might be due to the increase in popularity of JavaScripts as a form of malware. Once malicious .js file downloaded could help the attackers to steal the data from the system.
