Hi Everyone. I downloaded some RAR files that pertained to the recent Ledger crypto wallet hack to see if my information was included. When I attempted to unRAR the RAR files, I received the following fatal error. “an error occurred while loading the archive.” No other information was included and the RAR file did not open using the standard Archive Manager application.
Eventually I was able to open the RAR using a web based unarchiver, but now I’m worried that I inadvertently unleashed some kind of malware on my Librem running the most up to date PureOS.
Can anyone help me determine if these files contained malware and possibly in relation also help me understand why the Archive Manager did not unarchive the RAR files?
I am happy to supply the files if anyone has tools that they can use to analyze them. I ran them through TotalVirus but they came back clean. Some people on Twitter said the RARs contained some malware that affected their iOS devices, but not much other info.
Thanks in advance.
