Are you sure that it's a valid zip file? Where did you download it from? I've never heard of unzip segfaulting on an archive...

Segmentation fault could be caused by many things. An issue with the unzip command being corrupted. An issue with the file you're trying to unzip or more general issues on the system such as memory or filesystem errors.

What does "file $(which unzip)" show?
What does "file" show?
