I want to search for a binary file and all I know it contains a certain sequence of bytes. What tool can help me to find it?

I found a way of doing that with Agent Ransack. You check the box at Options > Content > Regular expressions, and then use them to specify your binary string:

You can do the same with other tools like WindowsGrep
