Microsoft does not provide email attachment blocking natively with Exchange.

You will find lots of Exchange compatible anti-malware (malicious
software) systems here:

On most of my Exchange deployments we use a Fortinet Fortigate
firewall in combination with Postfix running on FreeBSD to remove
unessential email attachments and forbidden content, rather than
placing these responsibilities on our Exchange server or even worse,
our client systems. In fact, on my networks you cannot connect
directly to any Windows servers including Exchange from the Internet.
