.exe Isn’t the Only Dangerous File Extension

Posted by at Tuesday, January 13, 2015 Read our previous post

The .exe file extension isn’t the only dangerous file extension to look out for. Files ending with these file extensions can also run code on your system, making them dangerous, too:

.bat, .cmd, .com, .lnk, .pif, .scr, .vb, .vbe, .vbs, .wsh

This list isn’t exhaustive. For example, if you have Oracle’s Java installed, the .jar file extension can also be dangerous, as it will launch Java programs.
