Error while uploading CSV file: Sorry, this file type is not permitted for security reasons

I got this error while importing WooCommerce sample products. There is no other plugin installed or activated.

This is due to the WP 5.0.1 security patches. It’s a known issue on trac.

I’m experiencing the same problem with Local 3.0.3 and Wordpress 5.0.3.

Is there a workaround or a fix yet? I couldn’t find the issue tracker that @afragen mentioned.

This happens for me with basic jpg and png files, too.
