Hi Andrzej,

You could open them, but still be none the wiser as to the malice of any
particular code.

MathReader should be immune from malicious execution statements that require
the kernel, but not (eg) from malicious Play[] statements (when Ctrl-Y is
pressed), since (from memory) they can be executed by the front end.  

Regards,

Dave.
