When I look up a site on wayback machine, I click through a couple of links on the site, and then instead of loading the page, it downloads a file called "default.exe".
Since I was expecting a page to load, not an
.exe to download, it roused suspicions.
Is this a common thing, and is there any way to figure out what's going on?
I'm 99% sure the site that wayback machine indexed wouldn't have tried to download an exe, although I could be wrong. The archived site is ~20 years old and was running on free hosting at the time (perhaps serving exe's was common back then)
