Does the Preview application which comes native with macOS have a blacklist, which prevents the launch of common executable types (similarly to adobe reader which prevents .exe .js etc. files to be opened)?

This question came from our site for information security professionals.

  • All applications declare to the system the types of files that they can open. It isn’t so much a blacklist as it is that Preview only knows how to open items such as graphics files. – red_menace Mar 21 at 3:18
