    Encryption type

    I came upon some encrypted text that I'm trying to decypher. I think it is PK because of what I can make out. I don't know much about encryption. I've been googling the hell out of PK but it didn't come with a key so I'm lost. Here it is.

    Code:
    PK
     	   .}Y"         TEXT.txt:`i\bWZ(ơe%_B phjPK}Y"      PK 
     	   .}Y"                    TEXT.txtPK      6   X
    I'm thikning it is PK because of the key words in it. I'm lost though.

    those squares are empty unicode characters, if it was encrypted there would not be any squares cause squares dont respresent anything. If it was encrypted, then the programmers goal i think was to make sure that no one would be able to access it. I would guess that this is just a bunch of garbage cause there are those squares...but then i have no real experience with encryption. Someone please tell me if i am correct or something

    Visual_C,

    could you tell us whete this came from, what you were expecting and what you are trying to figure out.

    That will help us out a great deal.

    It might be better if you attached the file to a post if possible.
