Remove PDF passwords using a virtual PDF printer
Authored by: benfsmith on Nov 15, '05 07:45:14AM

I have been using this effective workaround for about ten years. I remember being at a trade show about 6 years ago where the Acrobat team was presenting on the security of their app. I asked them about this, figuring that they would have a good explanation, or a plan to fix it. Although not my intention, it resulted in an embarrassing situation for them.

Pre-OS X, the process was to print to a postscript desktop printer and then use Distiller to generate the PDF.
