As part of JDunrar, the signature is extracted from each file. This has been done to check whether a file is encrypted. The same extraction of signatures can be applied to regular files (not in an archive) and compared to the extension on the file. If the filename contains no extension, one can be added.

If the extension of a file is wrong or missing, the user can be notified (this is a frequent Virus trick).

This would be an option of the Settings -> Modules -> After Download page, along with moving result files (which will no longer be restricted to RAR files.

This feature must be optional (see objection mentioned in the Developer Description).
