Why can't I upload BIN/HEX files (firmware images) directly?

Question Why can't I upload BIN/HEX files (firmware images) directly?
Answer Unfortunately the .bin and .hex extensions are unsafe to use on our site as they can be executed in some circumstances without the users knowledge.

This being the case, we could be at risk from hacking attempts which is something I already have to deal with on an almost daily basis.

Please zip up any firmware images (bin, hex etc.) before uploading.
