I think the only option you have is to brute force it

Or recreate the file, if the security settings only prevent stuff like editing.

well, heres the rub

it wasnt secured with standard adobe header, they used fileopen webpublisher, (fopn_foweb), 40bit security, v1.

that seems to make it considerably more difficult to break.. elcomsoft used to be able to crack it, apparently cant now...

any tips?

what's that?

 message digest 5 (MD5) is a hash algorithm, not an encryption routine

I thought perhaps you could print the PDF file to a postscript file and then covert .ps back to pdf but that doesn't even work.

Code:
%%[ ProductName: Distiller ]%%
This PostScript file was created from an encrypted PDF file.
Redistilling encrypted PDF is not permitted.
%%[ Flushing: rest of job (to end-of-file) will be ignored ]%%
%%[ Warning: PostScript error. No PDF file produced. ] %%

you can use ps2pdf to get around this if you have ghostscript installed or access to a linux/bsd/solaris box.

I've got some program that is supposed to strip the passwords from acrobat pdf's. If you are willing to send it my way I could see if that program works. not sure if it will work since you did it with another program, but shoot, why not. program is called passware

if you can print it, just print it out and re-scan it in. Go slow.

If you can give me a copy I can take a look and tell you how bad it is.

does he have an idea of what the password was, all letters numbers etc?

can you open it at all or read it?
