    Many people have asked about how to extract the files that contain the leaked OS files being offered by the BerryLeaks Team.

    BerryLeaks settled on the 7zip format because it has a higher average compression ratio, resulting in smaller download files. That means faster downloads and lower data-usage for you. Win/win, right?

    You can recognize 7zip files by the "file extension" at the end of the file: .7z.

    However common operating systems do not have built-in extraction tools for these files. If you try to extract them with a standard "zip/unzip" utility, it will give an error. So you will have to obtain some sort of utility to extract them. Since 7zip is an open-source project, there is no need to pay money for a tool to extract these files.

    Be careful when you look for software online - picking any old random Google link with "7zip" in the name may result in a scam site that downloads malware onto your computer. Here are the ONLY guaranteed legitimate 7zip sites:

    Igor Pavlov's 7-zip page (Downloads redirect to SourceForge)
    7zip open-source page on SourceForge

    If you'd like a reliable general download site where you can find other tools, such as a tool that extracts 7zip files as well as performs other compression tasks, or a Mac 7zip tool, my recommendation is Softpedia. They check all files for malware, adware or spyware, and unlike some popular download sites (Hello CNET ), they don't try to piggyback their own money-making adware/junkware onto every "free" download.

    7-Zip page at Softpedia

    Here are some free 7Zip tools for Mac OS-X:

    The Unarchiver for Mac at Softpedia
    keka for Mac at Softpedia

    And lastly, if you're a Linux user, take a look at your pre-built or repository packages for "p7zip", if it's not already installed, to extract 7zip archives.

    And for Linux, install p7zip from your distribution's repo.

    Personally, I don't like the 7zip interface. I always preferred IZArc, but it never got along with Windows 7 for me. I was always missing the context menu options.

    Ultimately I settled on PeaZip because it has a fairly nice interface, working context menus, and offers lots of options that I use.

    I personally use the command-line version.

    A few people in the 1323 thread were insistent that the "official" 7zip installed malware, so this is to put those claims to rest. Every single setup screen of the 7zip install from the proper site - no malware at all, not even anything you need to opt out of.

    If you get 7-Zip You WILL get much malware and viruses (198 to be exact). I am not sure which site I went to but I can tell you the file name is 7-Zip.exe

    It got into my QuickBooks and I lost 3 days worth of work (my fault for not backing up daily) and had hijacked my computer with repetitive pop-ups, advertisements playing in the background, etc.

    I have Avast and it didn't pick it up so here is what cleaned my pc:

    Download and run:
    SUPERAntiSpyware | Remove Malware | Remove Spyware - AntiMalware, AntiSpyware, AntiAdware!

    Then run (no need to download this one)

    Dr.Web CureIt!

    Reboot computer

    Turn off system restore

    Reboot

    Turn on system restore

    ****DISCLAIMER**** This worked for me and my system is be back to normal - I am in no way guaranteeing it will work for anyone else

    It is also possible that I got some of the malware and viruses from Android APP Store - Blackberry Playbook & Z10, Q5 and Q10 Apps :: Android APP Store – Blackberry Playbook & Z10, Q5 and Q10 Apps The apk to bar converter as I found one of the files that is a virus is called Less Tabs and it came from this site. The above process took care of it as well.

    To see if this is on your system go to:
    Control Panel -> Unistall programs and look for Less Tabs
    Then go to:
    C:\Program Files(x86)\Lesstabs
    The infection is C:\Program Files(x86)\Lesstabs\ie32\lesstabscliente.dll
