How to hack Scribd to download documents for free

How to download documents for free
I was looking at an online document that SOMEONE ELSE UPLOADED and it was very helpful, so I wanted to download it. Scribd however, wanted to charge a daily fee of around $5 dollars to download the content, when it clearly says someone uploaded it.

Here was the document that I wanted: 
For Public ID's(2012):
*document ID* = 90924585*document ID*/
or*document ID*/download
Insert the number id in the here ^
Sometimes using the first download link is better because it creates a download button. It should should show a download link.  

Update(2/18/12): For Private ID's:

Example URLs:

Right-click > View Page Source > Save as to a document on your computer *Make sure you do this to get the entire "Generated Source" (I used Mozilla FireFox)

 I saved this as "doc.html" Open the file "doc.html" > Search for "page.u" You should see something like "// page.uuid : 3kw800775slntll" 
page.uuid = "3kw800775slntll"
Now search for the page.uuid or "3kw800775slntll" and you should see something like: ""

The URL can range from "" to "".

Here is a simple Linux Bash Script to download the images:
Make SURE you change the *page.uuid* to your page.uuid.
cat "doc.html" | grep pages | cut -d"/" -f6 | cut -d. -f1 | grep -vi scrib | while read ID; do wget "*page.uuid*/images/$ID.jpg"; done;
However, once you find the page.uuid, you can substitute it in the URL. "*page.uuid*/images/$ID.jpg"

Update(2/25/12): For Protect(Preview) ID's:

When there are previews on Scribd, they are trying to selling a document and other allow users to few select pages.  Downloading these would be illegal and the script above only downloads the images of the "protected" documents.

Encryption on the Go! Hash fast with crypTo!

>>>>>>>>>Please Donate! - Be sure to Rate/Comment/Suggest!
*crypTo currently has 17 hashing algorithms!*

crypTo is an hashing/encryption application with the follow features:

Encoding (Hashing/Encryption and Decryption):
– Encrypts strings in Base64, Binary, CRC32, GOST, MD2, MD4, MD5, RipeMD128, RipeMD160, RipeMD256, RipeMD320, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, Tiger and Whirlpool!
– Decrypts Base64, Binary and looks up MD5 back to its original string!
– Hashing messages or numbers can be used in order to hide or send secret messages that could be decrypted later on!
– Hashing you own passwords and then pasting into Google in order to see if they have been cracked is a good way of checking the security of your passwords.

File Checksums (File Verification)
– Using CRC32, GOST, MD2, MD4, MD5, RipeMD128, RipeMD160, RipeMD256, RipeMD320, SHA-1, SHA-256, SHA-384, SHA-512, Tiger and Whirlpool!
– Every file has a checksum and when downloading files it is very important that these checksums are matched to the checksum given by the source providing the downloaded file because the files could contain malware or may not work properly because it was not completely downloaded.

Compare Strings and Files
– Copy and Compare Strings and check is they match!
– After Hashing a String or File, you may check and compare Checksums to make sure they are correct!
– Compare File to File through MD5 File Checkum!

What is a string?
– A string can be letters or numbers before they are encrypted into a hash.

What is a hash?
– A hash is an encrypted string of letters or numbers by different encryption methods. Hashes are used in cryptography for creating strong passwords, data encryption and to check the integrity of files.

What is a checksum?
– A checksum is a hash of a file.

Test on the following phone(s):
– Droid X
– HTC Inspire

Explanation of permissions requested:
– Internet: MD5 Reverse Lookup

Suggestions/Possible Future Updates:
– Widgets
– Saving Hashes
– File Encryption
– More Encryption Methods such as Adler-32 and Haval-128
