I am not sure if the title is the correct one. When transfering files over the network, in Wireshark, we see abbreviations like:
- PK -> Beginning of a file. Is it a compressed file? - OFT2 -> Beginning of a file transfer. - ELF -> DUMP? - MZ -> Binary file?
I have several questions, and feel a little bit confused in this topic:
- Where can I find an extensive list of this abbreviations?
- Where are this abbreviations coming from? Is it a wireshark thing, is it a file system thing? Because it's on the app layer, is this a app thing?
- Can someone point me to the right direction to learn more about this topic?
Thanks for your attention.
