    The type of files that can be uploaded is found here http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/what-filetypes-can-i-upload/
    Other types will be considered a security threat and you will not be able to upload them.

    Repeatedly posting like you just did above is not necessary.
    You are getting this message because the image you are trying to upload “does not meet security guidelines”. This is a multi-user blogging platform. The only file types allowed are listed in the thread I gave you the link to. The image you are trying to upload must not be one of the file types allowed. You will simply have to accept that and get on with your blogging.

    Are you posting an image that is hosted in another webspace, or uploading an image to your WordPress.com account and posting from there? When do you get the error message, and what method are you using to post (are you using the icon in the visual editor, or the Code editor?)?

    The same thing is happening to me too! I don’t know what to do! I upload the file, but when I press Upload, it says it doesn’t meet security guidelines!

    How BIG is it? Not in terms of visual size, but in megs. Sometimes pngs from cameras are huge.

    This can happen if the file doesn’t have an extension.
