Email Security: Why are emails generating image001.wmz attachments

My users have been experiencing some issues with emails generating image001.wmz attachments. Our exchange server is configured to block WMZ for security reasons, but users are concerned they are missing critical emails. The messages all typically contain an image001.wmz attachment. I have found some articles that indicates that having Word enabled as your email editor may cause this to occur. I do not want to re-enable WMZ attachment sending until we get a better idea of the security risk. Can you confirm that Word can indeed generate WMZ attachments under certain scenarios? Do you have a specific repro case? Any information is appreciated.
