I believe they are just trying to stop people from making copies of exams online. I need to make a PDF of my college GRE exam. Furthermore, I did all the practice tests, and have the PDF, but still can't figure out HOW to open it. My friend told me to “make sure there are no pictures or things where it could break into the file.” This is how I want to do it: 1. Download the PDF file from the web. 2. Save the PDF with Word, and open it in Notepad. 3. Delete every word where the word GRE appears or is found, so it won't match an actual printout. 4. Delete any pictures or text that have the word GRE in them. 5. Delete the word GRE from the Word document. 6. Retype everything in with a small letter. Then add the word GRE to the end of the word GRE, so it looks something like this: The only thing I left out was the “g” from GRE. When I was doing the practice test, I made sure the word GRE was in the word GRE section. With the words GRE in place, I copied and pasted the whole GRE section with the “g” in between each GRE. Then I cut all my pictures and text into separate word. It worked!!! Now it looks perfect. The only problem is I don't know how long the password will be. Do I just use the Word function to search for the answer? Or do I look for a more sophisticated password cracking program? I'm just going to type in my password and hope it's correct. The passwords that came back for this exam were “p1jk1”, “jk1”, “q5yq0”, “p2j5c”, etc. I need to do a brute force on the password. It looks like it's not the length it said on the exam. Any other clues on how to get around the encryption? I have a passkey for my account (it's not very secure). What if I put in a very secret code into the passkey then type in one of my passkey keys? Any other suggestions on how to unlock my passkey without using Word? R/WebDAV — Reddit Apr 25, 2023 — I don't have a passkey, but I do have the word PASSWORD in the PDF.
