If it is a trusted source, might be either a .zip/.exe/.MSI file, and ack is the filename. Probably an installer of some sort....

You can save it, and rename it to one of the extensions above. Reason I suggest those, is that a key is usually needed for installations of programs, which come in one of those three file types above.....
