Default Backwards Unicode names hides malware and viruses

From http://www.h-online.com/security/new...s-1242114.html

Quote:
AV vendor Norman has discovered malware that camouflages its file name via special Unicode characters. For instance, they may show up as exe.importantdocument.doc in the email client or in Windows Explorer. However, an executable (EXE) file that will still be treated as such by the system, and launched when double-clicked, is hidden behind this file name.
