It contains an image of the PlayStation BIOS, enabling the emulator to replicate the game console’s functionality and run games the same way the PlayStation console runs them. To prevent this from happening, the Dennis Brothers, Harry Chesley, Yves Lempereur, and others developed the MacBinary format to combine the two forks in a compressed archive. BIN files were common in the 2000s when computer users would rip stock ROMs data from CDs and DVDs. These users would insert the disc in an optical drive connected to their computer and rip the contents of the disc as a BIN file to their computer. Users would also burn BIN files to optical discs to make copies of discs with various utilities, such as Roxio Creator and Toast. BIN files are typically legitimate applications, but cybercriminals may use them to distribute and execute malware attacks. To protect against malicious executable attacks, do not run a BIN file you have downloaded from the Internet or received via email unless you trust the file’s source.
