This is not related to linux or FOSS, other than an opportunity for snug
elitism since it doesn't really affect us.  But I just noticed in my
junk mail folder, for the first time, a .exe (presumably malicious)
packed inside a .iso file.

Windows now mounts iso files when you 'open' them, and since Windows by
default hides file extensions, this is even easier for users to fall
prey.  Presumably, putting the exe in a zip file is an old trick now,
and most security software aggressively check them.. is anyone watching
out for iso?
