Management asked to get rid of the "Opening Mail Attachment" confirmation window.
This is easily done by going to Control Panel > Folder Options > File Types:
For each file ext. click advanced, and uncheck "Confirm Open After Download".
I have already disabled it for Word Documents, Excel Documents, and PDFs. However, I told them that it would not be secure to do this for all file types, such as EXE files.
Now, management wants to know how this would be unsecure to get rid of this window for all file types.
I need to know all aspects of how this would compromise our security, and could put us in a vulnerable situations, and what problems this might cause.
