Update: pdf-parser Version 0.4.1

Filed under: My Software,PDF,Update — Didier Stevens @ 21:24

From version 0.4.1 on, you can also pass a URL or a ZIP file as argument to pdf-parser:

pdf-parser.py http://example.com/doc.pdf
pdf-parser.py maldoc.zip

When you pass a URL as argument, pdf-parser will download the PDF document and analyze it. The PDF document will not be written to disk. Supported protocols are http and https.

Passing a ZIP file as argument instructs pdf-parser to open the ZIP file and analyze the first file it finds in the ZIP archive. If the ZIP file is password protected, pdf-parser will try to access the compressed file with password infected. Same as with URLs, the PDF file in the ZIP container is not written to disk.

Further changes are: bug fixes, performance improvement and option –content. This option allows you to view the content of an object without stream or with stream but without filters.
