If you're getting this file via email, its probably a known file type in
disguise. Some email systems covert attachments to DAT extensions - don't
really know the details of why it happens though.

Sometimes, you can open them by saving the attachment to disk with the
correct extension (assuming you know what it is - the sender should be able
to tell you). If that doesn't work, then you'll need to ask the sender to
resend it - sometimes, sending the email in plain text with the attachment
resolves the issue.
