    Hi guys,

    So I have captured packets of an FTP request for a certain file as part of a project. This file is compressed in tar.gz, and it contains a phrase that I need to find. The FTP data is a total of 189 bytes and looks like this:

    1f 8b 08 00 a5 34 c1 5a 00 03 ed d2 41 0b 82 30 18 c6 f1 9d fb 14 7e 01 6b 9b 3a eb 18 a1 1d 94 0e d9 a5 93 44 48 97 40 b0 05 7d fc 96 27 09 32 02 25 a2 ff ef f2 0e f6 1e 9e f1 ac a8 8e 4d 65 cb f4 7c 38 cd c4 48 a4 13 47 51 3b 9d e7 d9 9e 55 a0 8d d4 81 d6 81 11 52 a9 38 50 c2 8b c6 0a d4 75 bd d8 43 e3 79 a2 a9 6b db b7 f7 ee fe 47 15 9d fe 8b 64 b5 4d 76 65 9a 2f d7 53 7b 1b ee b5 8f 82 4d 18 be ee 5f 99 4e ff ee 9f a8 50 bb 75 4f 0e 96 a0 c7 bf f7 9f ed fd 24 cf 36 fe 3c 96 8b c9 b7 d3 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 f8 c4 1d 3a 3b 89 e7 00 28 00 00

    This translates to the following:

    …..4.Z….A. .0……~.k.:… ……DH.@..}..’ .2.%………… Me..|8..H..GQ;.. ..U…….R.8P.. …u..C.y..k…. .G….d.Mve./.S{ …..M…_.N…. P.uO………$.6 .<………….. …….:;…(..

    I am assuming that I can’t make sense of this because it is what you get when you open a compressed file in tar.gz in a text editor.

    Is there a way to reverse the process of the file compression to be able to make sense of the file: make the file readable to find the phrase in it?

    &#x200B;

    Thanks!
