OK, so I seem to post only about extensions lately... Gmail is going to 
block .js which mirrors in the wild attempts in zip files as well that 
we have seen VERY minorly in recent days.

Gmail will block .js file attachments starting February 13, 2017

Gmail currently restricts certain file attachments (e.g. .exe, .msc, and 
.bat) for security reasons, and starting on *February 13, 2017*, we will 
not allow .js file attachments as well. Similar to other restricted file 
<https://support.google.com/mail/answer/6590#messageswattachments>, you 
will not be able to attach a .js file and an in-product warning will 
appear, explaining the reason why.

If you still need to send .js files for legitimate reasons, you can use 
Google Drive <http://drive.google.com/>, Google Cloud Storage 
<https://cloud.google.com/storage/>, or other storage solutions to share 
or send your files.
