Possible Causes

The cat command was executed to display a large binary file, leading to garbled characters.

Solution

Log in to the ECS as user root and run the following command for recovery:

reset

The reset command is used to re-initialize the ECS and refresh the terminal display. After the reset command is executed, garbled characters are cleared and the fault is rectified.
