How to crack PDF Passwords Download the latest version or the latest development of the Crack tool here: Crack Tools Release List You will need GNU/Linux for the crack tool to work properly. If you plan to use one of the older cracking scripts or a shell script, it would be best to compile the GNU Tool chain. You can download the latest GNU/Linux packages for the PC (32-bit and 64-bit) here: GNU tool chain for x86-64 If you are not on GNU/Linux but are sure you have GNU/Linux installed then download the Crack tool here: Crack Tool release list (32-bit version only) Start Crack by running crack.sh or any of its related scripts You will see a series of questions to help crack down the password: What is the file type of the file we are trying to crack? Is the target file compressed or uncompressed? How is the content compressed? (i.e. x86_64 vs 32-bit) Answer: You can either pick the correct file type (i.e. compressed or uncompressed) that you are trying to crack. If it is the latter, then just type the correct path to the compression utility and press the “OK” button. It will then ask you to choose its location. Choose the archive that we are trying to extract (such as .PDF,.PX, .OT For any zip file that contains the content), press the “OK” button. The tool will extract all the files from the archive file. This is a one-click extraction of the content of the file. We will see each file, extract it using the proper tools we are looking for. Crack: The tool extracts all the content from the archive file into separate folders in the same working directory (i.e., the path that Crack uses to open the file in Windows) In our example, if you choose an uncompressed file for the target file, the Crack tool will extract (but do not include) the content into the following folders: /home/Mauser/Downloads/Crack\ \ Extract/ /home/Mauser/Downloads/Crack\ \ Extract\ — Compressed After having extracted every file from the archive we can see the contents inside the folder where the files are now: (In the screenshot below, the names of the folder are not shown.) Now we can see where the content should be extracted.
