EFnet as a network probably doesn't support that. Try to locate the specific user or channel that offered you this.

Kottalizer is absolutely correct: EFnet does not support any files or programs. At the moment, EFnet currently has over 19,500 channels, so "ask us on EFnet" isn't very helpful. In general, if you don't know and trust the supplier of any file, don't even try to download it much less open it. You are more likely than not to infect your computer with some pretty bad malware. Password protecting compressed (.rar and .zip) files is a way for malware distributors to avoid virus/trojan scanners.
