    Requested feature: Can the file manager have an additional simple-security option:

    1) Dangerous Double extension option:

    a) Disable click-access to double extensions
    b) Warn when clicking on double extensions

    Eg.

    Filename: *.x.y

    where:

    x = pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, ppt, pptx, txt, rtf, zip, rar, 7z, jpeg, jpg, png, gif, avi, mp3, wma, wmv, wav, divx, mp4

    y = exe, com, scr, and pif.

    2) Executable extensions

    a) Disable click-access to double extensions
    b) Warn when clicking on double extensions

    Something simple, like the above would make some people stop-and-think before blindly clicking on the
    first filename they see (hopefully)

    Cheers,
