Update to 8.4.3: improved user/password pdf file detection

The script didn’t ask a password for some rare FileOpen pdf combinations. This should fix (at least some of) the problems.

Reminder: The script* can’t decrypt FileOpen pdfs which need user authorization without the correct user/password or user/session cookie combination.

* In fact no other script can do that. You’re only chance to crack such a file is a brute force method. You can try with 40 Bit encrypted (V1) FileOpen pdfs but you have no chance in getting the key with 128 Bit (V2) FileOpen pdfs. More information about that topic can be found in the FAQs.

    With 8.4.3, I am getting an ERROR:CURL when I try to run the program. A small window pops up, but it is blank and the program hangs.

      Try 8.4.5 – if it doesn’t work please send the file + a bug report.

    So after reading a little bit more, i see that i need a wordlist ?
    Is it not enough with the userdata, i put into the field of Adobe/fileopen to crack this file ?
    The Program (Adobe/Fileopen) asked me for a Username/Email and for my password of this Account.

      I don’t understand your question. Describe your problem … does the pdf open with the Adobe Reader? What does it ask you for?
