#4 With Windows' hidden extensions feature, the sender simply adds ".pdf" to the end of the file (Windows hides the .exe) and the unwitting user is fooled into thinking the attachment is a harmless PDF file from a trusted sender.

I always hated Microsoft's default behavior of hiding file extensions.
