The RIC you mentioned seems to be a PAGE data and data type for each ROW is RMTES string.

From your description, it looks like you received the page data as plain text previously and the data feed just change the way to encode data in RMTES format. So if you just print the dataBuffer as a string, you will see garbage and actually it's data encoded with RMTES format. I did a quick test the RIC and found the same result.

In this case, If you are using RFA OMM Interface, you have to use RMTESConverter class to decode the field. You can find the description of the usage from RFA C++ Developer Guide(RFA_DevelopersGuide.pdf) section 8.6 RMTESConverter Usage. I also did a quick test by using the codes from the developer guide with StarterConsumer and get a correct page. You can see a result from my test in attached file _starterconsumer-9420.zip

You should add RMTESConvert to your application codes when it decodes dataBuffer which has dataBuffer type StringRMTESEnum. Anyway, you can contact the Elektron data feed team for the reason that it changes the data format since 26 Aug.
