PDF track 17/04/12(Wed)00:13 No. 120748

Guys, is it true this track pdf thing? How do I know my pdf is marked? How do I know if it's really clean? What are the methods to clean?

Nope, it's a government ruse. You can't track a pdf more than you can track a cellphone. The whole idea is just preposterous!

Chill the fuck out, dude; I was kidding. Ross Cowman didn't infiltrate 7chan to give us bad intel on pdfs.

...or did he?

No, but Stephan did, that's what he's doing here. You think he's giving out PDFs but actually he's a government mole slowly shutting us all down...

Actualy yes PDFs can be tracked, since acrobat has JavaScript features, this can be coded to 'call home' with any of your personal information.

This is one reason I strip javascript from the PDF's I clean. A company called Remote Approach actually offers the ability to do this...

Also there is this article...

Wow.

Good thing my firewall is configured so it doesn't allow my PDF readers internet access.

Is there a way to batch-strip the javascript from a folder structure of pdfs, or must they be done one at a time?

Unlocking PDF Anonymous 17/04/14(Fri)02:27 No. 120825

Mage, if I have a PDF that has "copy" security restriction, is there some app I can use to remove that.

Not sure if need something to remove passwords or if something just removes the restriction?

Use Elcomsoft PDF password remover. That will fix the whole issue of PDF security.

Thanks for the tip.

I really only need it for 5 PDFs, so $50 is a bit more than willing to go atm. Will bookmark and check regularly to see if they ever discount to like $29.99 which for the limited use is a bit easier to suck up.


Thanks!

Dude. You're on a website (partially) dedicated to piracy. So... why does this Elcomsoft Password thingy cost $50? It took me about 15 seconds to find a copy on my favorite fishing spot.

Probably because I never tried looking for these things before and have no clue where/how to look "safely" for these sort of things. I assumed improperly it seems, that on such a site as this, if someone gives a link to the manufacturer's site that it is not available otherwise.

Heck, that software being Russian company if I read right makes me nervous, wuss that I am. Free would be great, but I worry - not knowing these things - if it is unsafe to install on a Win box.

I've been scanning around to see if there were Linux versions out since less worried about that PC.

Thank you. Took care of that.

On similar subject - is there a safe to acquire "zip file password remover" out there? I am not familiar with this at all either. Quick scan came up with names like nsis which makes it into an EXE you must click on. Um, interesting and very Admiral Ackbar-y!

What do you guys use for editing pdfs, besides Acrobat Pro?

Sometimes Illustrator to fix issues. Sometimes Photoshop to fix other issues.
