Normally executables are in extensions such as exe, dll, .scr, bat, com etc etc.. But I recently came across some issues related to cpp extension which I believe it should be for c++ source code that is to be opened via notepad and/or related compiler.. Ie http://file.org/extension/cpp
But some unwanted/malicious programs seem to be using cpp extension in startup/rundll/task scheduler.
Just wondering, other than using as a source code extension, how it is used as an executable? Or any other use of it? Anyone having similar experience ? Kindly share your thoughts..
