Password-protected PDF Samples

Q: Password-protected PDF Samples

Dear Users,
I am in need of a large amount of password protected PDFs (say 1000), so that I may tally the most commonly used passwords.
Does anyone know where I could find such a thing?
Any help would be much appreciated,

Preferred Solution: Password-protected PDF Samples

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Password-protected PDF Samples

How would this allow you to tally commonly used passwords?
There are plenty of reports online regarding commonly used passwords.

Any idea, what are the passwords for malware samples on those webpages?

Free Automated Malware Analysis Service - powered by VxStream Sandbox

Malwr - Malware Analysis by Cuckoo Sandbox

A:What is the password for malware samples?

Malware samples downloaded from Malwr for example, are in .bin format if I remember well.
Just rename them to .exe, or in the native format as from the report (.js, doc, etc).
Which password do you mean?

As above really. Trying to create a network for file sharing, as have upgraded the 'server' (part of a Workgroup, not a Domain) from WinXP to Win7 and experienced problems ever since. Ironically the problems haven't mainly been with sharing files between Win7 and WinXP systems, but between 2 Win7 systems.

I bought a new Win7 laptop and tried to connect it to the server, but it hasn't had Read/Write privileges over the files in the Win7 server. Entering a username and password to gain access to the servers folders has not been a problem, and as far as I know, opening files such as documents has not been a problem either. However, when trying to save an edited document, access is denied, and if I try to open an executable file (this is necessary for a node installation), it prompts me for a network password.

Every combination possible of username and password from the 2 systems (including '\' or 'SYSTEMNAME\' before the username) has not worked. I tried syncing the times which was apparently a previous problem, but to no avail. I am unable to access Local Security Policy, as the server is running off Home Premium. I have tried creating a new workgroup, removing and changing passwords, enabling guest access to the network through the Windows Resource Kit Command Shell, creating identical users on both computers, but nothing appears to have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

The company I work for has a control room where they have to enter data into excel spreadsheets with lots of links and macros, so we password protected the sheet so that they could only manipulate the cells that they needed. Myself and 2 other employees have access to the spreadsheet. Someone changed the password and the person does not remember what they changed it to. Is there any way to reset the password?

I've read through pages and pages of search results for this, but they all seem to be between Win7 and XP, or something not quite the same as my problem.

Here at home we are all using Windows 7 (a mix of Home Premium and Ultimate). I have an HTPC which has all our DVDs on. This PC has a few shares so we can access our movies across the network.

I have set up the shares using the Sharing Wizard thing, and set 'Everyone' to Read/Write. I can verify the permissions for the shares in Advanced Sharing > Permissions, and see that 'Everyone' has full control.

In the Network and Sharing Center, the settings for sharing are as follows:Network discovery = ON
File and printer sharing = ON
Public folder sharing = OFF (no need for it)
Media streaming = ON (for WMP, Xbox)
Use 128-bit encryption = ON
Password protected sharing = OFF
Allow Windows to manage Homegroup connections = ON
I should point out after the last bullet point that we are not using a Homegroup.

So with all that as it is, whenever I try to connect to the HTPC shares from another computer, I still get prompted for a username and password, with the "X Invalid user name and password" message beneath the text boxes. I can, however, connect without a problem from my laptop, which has the same username and password as the admin account on the HTPC.

The strange thing now - if I type "anonymous" into the username box and try to connect, I get in. Everything then works as it should. So either all... Read more

A:Password protected sharing is OFF, still asked for username/password?

You might want to check that the time/date settings are correct on the HTPC. If they aren't correct on one of your machines it will give you a password prompt as you described.

Also under power options, make sure that it's not set to require a password when coming out of sleep state.

Go to Control Panel, then Power Options "look upper left side". Click "Require a password on wakeup".

Select the radio button "Don't Require a Password" and then Save Changes. Your done.

I'm currently trying to help our Network Admin out and I'm running into a problem. Hopefully someone here can help get me back on track. We're in the process of changing the passwords to all of our password protected files (mostly word xp and excel xp files). Most of the files have the same password and we need to set them to something more complex but the problem is that we have almost a thousand files that need changing. Is there anyway to do a mass password change on all the protected files or am I going to have to do it all manually??

thanks in advance!

My old desktop motherboard kicked the bucket. I used XP Pro to have two login accounts on the PC, and I password protected "my login", the other user was not password protected. So I put the hard drive in my old desktop and it won't let me access my folder that is associated with the password login. Any ideas? It is my account "folder", so I have the password. But again it was only the login password through XP Pro...to login to the computer under my account, not some other type of security measure.

So I've enabled password protected sharing for Windows 7 (for my first computer).

So now, when I used my second computer to access my first computer's shared files, it obviously prompted me with a password.
My question is, I don't know what's the username and password for that. I was wondering if someone can help me to find my username and password (or guide to reset this password) so my second computer can access the shared files with my first computer while preserving the password security.

A:How To Change The Password On "Password Protected File Sharing"

Use the username and password that you use when you log onto the first computer.

If that does not work, try
user = computername\user
password = password

...where computername = the name of the first computer.

I just installed Avast free edition on my computer and ran the first scan. It came up with 157 files it was unable to scan. I think maybe they are "password protected" files, because my old antivirus, Bitdefender was showing 103 "password protected" files a few days ago. I don't know what that means. Do I need to do anything? I took screenshots of the Avast program showing the files, in case they are needed.

A:Password protected?

The files may have been locked and protected so your AV, skipped them."Object is locked skipped" or "Access Denied" notations in an anti-virus/anti-malware scan are normal. Some files are permanently locked by the operating system or locked by running programs during use for protection, so scanners cannot access them. Files that are located in password-protected archives may also be locked or denied access. When the scanner finds such a file, it makes a note and then just skips to the next one. That explains why it shows as skipped" or "Access Denied" in certain anti-virus or anti-malware log scan reports. These skipped detections are seldom malware related so there is no need for concern.It is also not unusal for an anti-virus or anti-malware scanner to be suspicious of or encounter problems with some compressed, archived, .cab and packed files because they have difficulty reading what is inside them. These kind of files often are resistant to scanning (difficult to read) and they may even be ignored (skipped). This resistance may also result in some scanning engines to stall (hang) on these particular types of files. If the amount of files not scanned appear to be numerous, you can always try rescanning in "safe mode" which reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials which make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of files that may be skipped due to protection by other running progra... Read more

I have two computers running XP Pro which are networked and I am also on a LAN with one of them. I need to set up file sharing so that some shares can be accessed by anyone on the LAN (which I have done by giving Everyone read permission; works fine), and another share can only be accessed by people that know the username and password.

I set up a limited user account specially for this purpose and gave it permission to write to this share, but the problem is that when I try to connect to the share it just tells me "access denied" without even giving me a password prompt. How can I make it give me a prompt? I know that it works apart from that because I can access this share from Linux by using the username and password when I mount it. It's just that XP is not allowing me to input the password. Any idea why?

Hello. Looking for some advice please. Since I`ve had my Advent 2001 laptop for around five years (and still working well!) I always log in using an administrator password. Now I don`t actually need to have this activated because nobody else in my household uses my laptop (mum is 76 and has trouble returning her TV!) so what I wanted to ask was:

1. Should I get rid of using a password every time I want to use my internet/laptop? And if so, how do I disable it?
2. What would my screen then look like on boot up? Instead of a screen with a box to type in my password, would it just show the windows icons for me to click on/open?

I can`t remember if was asked to set this password up when I originally set up my laptop when new, but also can`t remember if it was optional or not, hence my asking about it now. I`d really just prefer to boot up and click on my windows symbol to connect to the internet rather than going through a password every time I log off. x

A:Administrator - password protected

Actually....I don`t think it`s easy to do after googling some answers and others have asked how to disable their windows password and can`t. It seems as though it was a default thing when the system was set up. I use windows 7 home premium. I might just keep it if it means messing up my laptop! If it was a matter of clicking a button to switch it on/off, simple. But I think it`s more of a settings nature and command prompts.

I have a small domain setup with a couple windows 2000 server boxes and a couple client computers on a small network. The last server I added can be reached through my network places, entire network etc. without asking for a password when you are not signed into the domain on that computer. When I try to access all the other computers/servers via a computer that is not logged into the domain it asks for a password, why is there no password on one of them. I do not know what I did differently with this server. Any ideas on how to protect it so it asks for a password when you try to access it and you are not signed into the domain?

A:server not password protected

Check your permissions on your server and ensure nothing is shared out to "Everyone" Also check what is setup in your Admin group if you Have something like an "Everyone" listed in the admin group even if you don't have "Everyone" listed in the shares then you would still have Admin access.

Note that Everyone is just a placeholder for any possible group that all the users on your domain may be part of.
