Just wondering, or is it only like executable files, etc?
Yes they can contain virusses.
Virusses are usually pieces of code wich attach themselves to other files.
Hell, people have hid infections in JPEG images before.
Want to download my photo of me and my dog called not-a-virus.jpeg.exe ;o??
I knew that, you can even hide rar files inside JPEG's.
Its just code and like all code it can be tampered with.
google 42.zip (aka zip bomb) Clever piece of work
.jar stands for "java archive" if my memory serves me right
it's basically semi-compiled java code. The keyword here is "code".
So yeah, a .jar file is like a .Exe except it's coded in java. It could be dangerous depending on what the code is meant to do...
Nicely said Cos.
