Attaching a .ps1 file to a post fails

Our users are having trouble attaching .ps1 files to posts in our Community. When submitting a post with such an attachment it fails with the following error: "The attachment's xx.ps1 content type (application/octet-stream) does not match its file extension and has been removed."

For example:

Does anybody have any ideas on how to get past this and successfully get a .ps1 attachment posted?

I'd be surprised if anyone in the community can answer this one. It sounds like an issue that will require a support ticket to resolve.

OK - will do. Thanks for the pointer.

To close the loop on this for anybody else coming across this topic: Khoros have confirmed that there is a defect causing problems here.

The workaround we are using at the moment is to compress .ps1 files in .zip files, and attach the .zip file instead.
