Executable Files

Executable files contain code that is run when the file is opened. Windows programs, Mac OS X applications, scripts, and macros are all considered executable files. Since these file types run code when opened, unknown executable files, such as those received as e-mail attachements, should not be opened.

Common executable file extensions include .EXE, .APP, .VB, and .SCR.
