MultiUpload does not unpack .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, or .tgz ("not a permitted file type")
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

The MultiUpload page (Special:MultiUpload) says:

To unpack a .zip, .tar, .tar.gz, or .tgz file and upload the files contained within it, select the package file and then use the "Unpack" button that appears.

However, attempting to do so (using the "Unpack" button, not the "Upload files" button) gives the following error:

Error uploading package file
Error: ".zip" is not a permitted file type. Permitted file types are png, gif, jpg, jpeg, svg, ico, mp3, mid, wav, ogg, pdf.

The extension is unmaintained upstream, and we'll be dropping it as soon as it causes a security issue or no longer works.

We won't ever allow uploading archive files because we're not a file hosting site and they're a security risk.
