..and it's all jarbled, does that mean it's encrypted? Anyway way to undo that?
pretty much would think so. get the public key and an unencryption software.
I am not sure what software there is out there, but i am sure there is stuf out there.
What do you mean by public key? The key it was encrypted in?
i guess i should clarify. Some encryption algorithms have a public and a private key. The public key is sent to both parties and with that they can send/receive files at will. Other encryption algorithms have just one key or none at all. These are very hard to crack in most cases. some of which is a one way encryption.
To cliff note the answer, yes. if it has one. Where did you get the file? can you have to originator decrypt it for you?
what are you opening it with? it could just be an unrecognized character encoding
I opened it with word. Should I use something else?
Try opening it with Internet Explorer or Notepad.
Just to see if that works.
This is what I've got for the first few lines, opened in IE
Any and all help is greatly appreciated. I will paypal $50 to whomever can help me decode this.
Obviously the smilies were not in the original document
if you can see the tags but the data is garbled it's not an encoding problem
The software that this xml file came from is encrypting the data during/before creating the xml file. Usually something like this is pretty much a lost cause.
