Can OFP mission files contain viruses?

I suggest you read this thread of posts on the OFP NG to get an introduction about the potential (or lack thereof) of OFP mission files harboring PC viruses or activating trojans.

If any of you mission makers out there can demonstrate creating a mission file that can execute either an external file or an executable file packed within a mission file, please email me and let me know about it.

So far, Codemasters has not come back to the player community with a definitive reply. However, going through all of OFP's available scripting commands, I cannot see anything that could allow this to occur.
