User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:53.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/53.0
Build ID: 20170413192749

Steps to reproduce:

DCR:  Allow users to lock attachments by type to prevent opening


Actual results:

Latest phishing scam relies on a Google doc to be opened by the user; it grabs contacts and spreads itself to them.  E-mail address may look legit, but it is spam, generated by the Google doc phish. wired.com/2017/05/dont-open-google-doc-unless-youre-positive-legit/


Expected results:

Allowing users to lock attachments ('lock .pdf; lock .[whatever Google docs are], lock .docx, etc.) by type allows this sort of attack to be prevented to some extent.  Allowing individual doc unlock (unlock this doc? y/n) would be nice.

Do-ability?  not sure, but this would be nice.
