How to crack password protection on a Microsoft Word document

Microsoft Word documents can be protected to prevent users from editing content, however, quite often, our clients can be prone to forgetting the password protection they had setup in their Word Documents.
There is a relatively simple way to sidestep the password protection on a Word file.Here’s how you crack the password protected Microsoft Word file:

First, open the document and do a “Save As…” specifying an alternative word version format.
Now open the newly saved file by double-clicking on it. It should look identical to the original Word file.
That’s all there is to it. The password protection is lost and the document can now be edited.

How to unprotect protected Microsoft Word Documents

This is a curious quirk I stumbled across earlier today. 
 
If you have a word document that is protected and have forgotted the protection password (if there is a protection password associated to that doc), you can get around this by saving the document into a new file!!!
 
This loses any password protection that had originally applied, therefore giving you open access to the document in its new form.
 
Ooops!  Bit of a security flaw there but a nifty work around if you have a forgetful client!

Requires doc to docx M$ converter? Edit

Not sure if this is refering to the same thing – but I only got this to work by installing M$ compatibility pack (converts doc to 2007s docx formats), and converting to docx and back again.

This hack may not work in later versions of Office 2007 etc etc.

Download the pack from:
