Blocking links to executable files

Is there an official way to block user-posted links that points to executable files? I’m guessing one option might be to use the censored pattern and a regex, just wondering if there is a better way?

Thank you.

Even with a regex, users can mask the link using a url shortener service.


That’s true. But that would be true no matter what we were trying to block (like a spam link that otherwise possibly was blocked/flagged).

I was just wondering if the link was an obvious link to an executable if there was some build-in way or plug-in.
