If you ever forget the password for an PFX file

Had a case yesterday where we needed the password for a Certificate PFX file.

Luckily we found this tool, and after a short time using brute force we got the password: http://crackpkcs12.sourceforge.net/

If you have a netbook or a small laptop, why not spin this up in Azure using a Linux machine?

Anyhow, it works, and the service is back on line 🙂
