Attention !! Super hide Extentions on Windows
Even you unhide the extensions in windows, you still cannot see certain
hidden extensions as:
.shs, .pif, and .lnk
And this is One of users problem,because these extentions are executable
and are very popular for virus writers.
I tell you an example to show you how they can be dangrous for your system:
1.Unhide the extentions (01.png in attachment)
2.Select an "exe" file in your computer,(in this example i selected Clock.exe)
and rename it to "Clock.exe.pif",(see 01.png in attachment).you will see
that it's icon will be changed and also the extention ".PIF" will get
3.Now if you double click on that it will run clock exe.
In this example our file was clock.exe and running that will not hurt our system
but if the virus or trojon writer,write a virus by the extention of ".PIF",and
for example rename it to "notepad.exe" and change it's icon to notepad icon,we
will not know that it is a viruse,and if we run it,our system will halt.!!!
There are other extentions as i told above.
If this tutor was interesting for you ,next time i will say about ".shs" extention
that is more understandable.
have good times
