Remove Password in Powerpoint

14 posts in this topic

Hey Guys

 

was not sure where the best place was to post this

 

We have a powerpoint that a team uses at work

 

one of the team members created it and added a password that is needed to modify it

 

This employee has now left

 

We need access to the powerpoint to change some of the wording in it

 

 

Do any of you know of a way to be able to remove the password so we can modify it again

You have to know the password. If you're an extreme haxor you can decrypt it, but that would take a long time, or you could brute force the password, which could take a long time.

Surely if it was for work the person wouldn't have used a hard cryptic password. Just try a simple brute force attack on it.

Can you open the presentation at all? If you can, you could try to just copy the slides into a new unprotected presentation and make changes there.

Yeah, it's a small price for this big company where I work :)

 

P.S. The basic version is just 48$

Send me a pm with a link to the file, I have some software installed here at work that can probably remove or tell me the password.

 

And if you can't host it anywhere, let me know I have an internal site you can upload to via a web-page.

The only thing I can think of is to take screenshots of the slides and then photoshop them. But it could be too much of a hassle. So you may as well just re-create it from scratch.

Yeah no rush, you know where to find me. I'd recommend the software but it's forensic recovery high dollar stuff we use at work and requires a hardware dongle. Plus it's super expensive.
