    Hi Everyone,

    What are the recommended file types to add to the blocked filetypes list?

    The default Blocked Filetypes in WormGuard are: .HTA, .JSE, .SHA, .SHS, .VBE.

    From various other posts (Thanks TAS and UNICRON), I found these would be good to add: .VBS, .JS, .WSF, .WSH, .SHB, .MDE
    Would adding .JS cause websites that use external JavaScript files (.js) to fail?

    Would adding any of these make any sense? Anything particularly dangerous? (Using WinXP Pro)
    .WMD = Windows Media Player Download Package
    .SCT = Windows Script component
    .WSC = Windows scripting component file
    .CHM = Windows Help based on HTML
    .ASF = Active Advanced Streaming Format, Internet Document
    .ADE = MS Access Project Extension
    .CPL = Windows Control Panel extension
    .CRT = Internet Security Certificate
    .ADP = MS Access Project
    .BAS = Basic source code
    .IDQ = Data Query Internet IE Explorer
    .IDA = MS Server File (Code Red Worm attaks default.ida)
    .HTW = htmlfile open with: Internet Explorer -nohome
    .IDC = Internet Database Connector : Document
    .printer = ?
