    I decided to set amon to scan only files with extension that match those in the extension list of nod32. However, I noticed that some potentially dangerous extension are missing in that list:

    .msi Windows Installer File
    .xpi Mozilla/Firefox Browser Extension Archive

    I added those manually but I think it wouldn't hurt if they were in that list by default.

    Does anyone have any other extension that should be added?

    So you want AMON to scan inside archives? Why not add .zip and .rar and .arj etc etc also?

    EDIT: In my opinion, archives aren't really that dangerous. It's just when malware inside the archives gets unpacked (and run) that it becomes a threat.
