    Win 8.1 vulnerability to *.ps1 file attacks by hackers


    If I log-on to WIN 8.1 as 'administrator' Is it possible to unknowingly download a malicious *.ps1 file that re-sets my PowerShell ExecutionPolicy to 'UnRestricted' thus making me vulnerable to a subsequent attacks by *.ps1 files that hacks my system ?
