Interesting... If you copy and paste the following symbol and then start typing, your text will be written backwards: ‫‬‭‪‫‬‭҉

‫‬‭‪‫‬‭҉WTF? Until now I thought that was a hoax, and yerma was only playing along with it. What kind of weird character is that?

It's a unicode character that changes from left-to-right to right-to-left. smile.gif Found it on the Invision Board forums.

Its a right click menu option in many text areas in Microsoft programs on XP 64Bit (e.g. Notepad, IE and Explorer)
Eh, but for some reason the text remains the same, its just a reworded Align Right.
Oh n Firefox doesn't like that symbol. I cant copy it or copy any text if that symbol get highlighted.

I first tried it in several editors including OOo Writer and MS Word. None of them showed anything spectacular. This Character seems to be encoded of 10 bytes!

There's nothing actually special about that symbol.

----

That "symbol" is actually:
CODE
‫‬‭‮‪‫‬‭‮҉


in other words, a collection of bidirectional text control characters.

All the same, Microsoft ought to think about issuing a patch that prohibits the use of these special characters, at least in file names--there can be no good reason to use them there.

Give it a thought. The guy effectively says, Dear Microsoft, please don't let us do things that can be potentialy harmful. And next thing you notice, you're not allowed to do something, that's well considered harmful by someone else, say mr Gates. It's like 'okay, let me do it, i can take responsibility' vs 'i clicked and it blow up, it's all your fault'.

Anyways, you click renamed icon, it launches associated app, not the file directly. Where's the catch? (still new to all this hackery thing)

The point is: You may get fooled to run malicious programs.
In the above linked example, the file name reads like to be a JPEG-file; you may consider it harmless to run the associated application, thinking it would be some picture viewer. But, the real file extension is .SCR, which is an executable like .EXE.

It will still run 'foo bar.malicious', not './bar.malicious'.

Nevermind, should've read more carefully, their concern is that it might 'potentially carry damaging code that exploits holes in the associated software'.
