I have received a zip file which I can't open. In the email network header, the
content-type for the document reads
file -i and 'file' for the same file respectively read
'application/octet-stream; charset=binary' and 'Zip archive data'
When opened as an HTML, the file is some unreadable garbage, and opened as a .zip yields an error.
I think it may have something to do with the file header being incomplete. The first 8 bytes of the file have no meaningful data,
14 03 00 00 08 00 5B 82
but changing these to the header of a zip file still leads to errors. Using
iconv -c -t UTF-8 also results in garbage.
How can I open this file? i have left a link for it at https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mf1UX_-Oec6cAwDs-lGqf47SejfKVCsp in case the actual file is needed.
P.S: This is what the
zip -FF -li -v command gives for the file:
Fix archive (-FF) - salvage what can Found end record (EOCDR) - says expect single disk archive Scanning for entries...
