I don't think it's spam. The zip contains this library http://www.dynamicdrive.com/style/csslibrary/item/css_3d_flip/, and it looks like the author is just looking for help integrating it into his site (though in a very spam-like way).
You are correct that we probably shouldn't be allowing .zip attachments. I don't see any obvious way to change allow filetypes at a glance. I'll look more into it as soon as I can.

In https://github.com/cuny-academic-commons/commonsinabox-org/commit/0ec3cd8cff0ade4e130214f3e27d8b61b62f9a81, I blacklist a number of zip formats from being uploaded by non-admins. Deployed to production.
