Have you heard: From next month 13th, Gmail will stop Javascript file attachments

Google is set to stop JS files to be sent as an attachment,
JS files within archieves are not left out. This action is set
to prevent its users from malicious mails which most
times attach different forms of executable programs.
These consists of batch files (.bat), standard window
executables (.exe) and Javascript files (.JS).

During web application development, JS files are most
times loaded as an integral part of the web pages.
Therefore, an opening of an unknown JS file on windows
can be fatal. Since by default, it runs inside windows script
host thereby leading to the window executable program to
be run by these scripts.
It has not been said if an alert of any sort will be given
when emails with JS file attachment is been received.
