My magic file has all the Dos Executable (COM) entries disabled by default. I
wonder if it is a risk?
There couldn't be that many left floating around anymore.

# .COM formats (Daniel Quinlan, quinlan at
# Uncommenting only the first two lines will cover about 2/3 of COM files,

# two dozen different one-byte "magics".
#0	byte		0xe9		MS-DOS executable (COM)
#>6	string	SFX\ of\ LHarc	(%s)
#0	byte		0x8c		MS-DOS executable (COM)
# 0xeb conflicts with "sequent" magic
#0	byte		0xeb		MS-DOS executable (COM)
#0	byte		0xb8		MS-DOS executable (COM)
