What are banned file extensions in email

Just received this

Dear Plusnet Customer,

You are receiving this mail because you have an active virus-scanning service, and either a banned file extension or an email containing a virus has been sent to your address.

This may be relevant

The mail was sent to you from:

* <vm@unlimitedhorizon.co.uk>

The subject line of the mail received was:

* [-SPAM-] Voice Message Attached from 01258893964 - name unavailable

Not objecting to it being quarantined because it is at least spam

Jim,

I got the exact same email sent to my 'leaked from the PUG space' email address.

I had one too! Sent to one of my email aliases.

Where did they get the email address from?

Sounds like phishing emails to me, probably worth deleting them.
