This is a reminder for myself more than anything.

In the Samsung Seller Office you are occasionally provided with a .zip file containing results from the "Certification" process. This zip file won't open on a Mac if you double click it, and the Archive Utility will turn it into a .cpgz file, then another .zip file, and so on ad infinitum.

Running the command line tool gives:
➜ unzip ../
Archive:  ../
   skipping: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxx  need PK compat. v4.5 (can do v2.1)
This implies that it's a newer version of zip. So:
➜ 7z x ../ 
7-Zip [64] 9.20  Copyright (c) 1999-2010 Igor Pavlov  2010-11-18p7zip Version 9.20 (locale=utf8,Utf16=on,HugeFiles=on,8 CPUs)
Processing archive: ../
Extracting  xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.xxxx
