As a preface, I do not have any experience in reverse engineering. I am an application developer, so this field is way out of my area of expertise. My end goal is to create a web page out of this information but this is the first hurdle I faced: getting the required data in the first place.
I am currently trying to identify the nature of a file that I have suspicions might be encrypted and/or compressed (I'm still trying to learn the tell-tales of a file being encrypted/compressed). Since this is way above what I can do at the moment, it would be great if someone can help out or at least provide some guidance.
This is an example file (do let me know if you'd like some more examples):
So far, here's what I know and attempted:
- File is most likely a JSON or CSV (not 100% sure, but all the other unencrypted metadata files are JSON/CSV format)
- File has a lot of repeated sets of binary
bd, which I'm assuming are just paddings or an attempt to obfuscate?
- Most of the corresponding hexes do not really translate to a readable set of standard encodings such as UTF-8
Any help/guidance would be appreciated.
