Hi, I'm working on reproducing this.
The file extension is checked in UploadBase::getTitle(). If
$wgCheckFileExtensions and $wgStrictFileExtensions are both true
(which by default they are), then the file should be rejected during
the upload process. If that check is being bypassed, then we have a
serious issue we need to get patched asap.
Are both $wgCheckFileExtensions and $wgStrictFileExtensions set to
true on the system where you're seeing this behavior? Also, are you
using UploadWizard, or another extension to trigger this, or the
standard Special:Upload page?
