An important feature of Reaper DAW is large database of user-written extensions. How safe they are to use, regarding either malicious intent or bugs? What is the extent of the potential danger, e.g. can an extension possibly install a virus or delete files? What reasonable steps one may and should undertake to avoid installing dangerous extensions?

I understand this is a computer security question, but Reaper is music software, so I think this is the site where I can find users who are competent to answer.

    "Don't Fear the Reaper". Just make sure you install the "more cowbell" extension.

    The title of this question makes it seem like it belongs on agriculture.stackecxchange.com.
