PDF files are those created by Adobe acrobat applications with .pdf extensions. If the password to access a PDF file is lost or misplaced, the file cannot be edited, copied or even printed. All access to the file is completely cut off.Â In these cases, PDF Password Recovery 1.0 enables you to retrieve or reset the password with just a click. The tool supports all versions of Adobe Acrobat and other PDF related applications.
The tool works effectively on owner protected passwords which allow access to editing, copying or printing functions of a PDF password protected file or user and permission passwords which allow access to opening a PDF password protected file. It fails to work on Digital Right Management (DRM) systems. The basic operation involves either restoring the password or resetting it depending on the situation.
In cases where the password may be partially known or not set, decryption is carried out immediately with the creation of possible patterns until the password is found. With the restoration of the password, owner protected rights of the file are also withdrawn leaving the user with the ability to open, modify, copy or print the PDF file. In the case of an unknown password, Brute force, dictionary based and unique boost up attacks are carried out to find the correct password. These methods have very high speeds and are extremely productive due to the complex nature of the encryption/decryption algorithms used. Even if the attack is interrupted due to external reasons, it can be resumed from the point it was stopped.
