No. What likely happened is that due to a bug in your OS or harddrive
controller, sectors from the middle of a binary (like an executable)
got put in place of some of your blocks in your postgresql backup.
You need to use a robust editor like vi to chop those parts out and
see what you get.
But the real answer is to use a known good backup.
