Potential security risk of attached files?

Post by boffer10 on June 17th 2010, 6:25 am

The founder of my forum has chosen to not allow uploading of attached files because of potential security risks.

As his appointed admin, I would like to turn on the 'attach file' feature for the members' convenience. Forumotion itself allows file attachments. Are there other reasons I can use to assure him that uploading the permitted files won't cause problems?

Its up to the admin's who want to attachments. There is always a harm of downloading anything but that is for everything.
