What tool can I use to forensically check a single .pdf


I usually use Autopsy however, Autopsy only allows me to check logical drives or images.

I would like to check a single .pdf that i think is infected.

what tool allows me to do that and how

File contains private information I am not allowed to send it outside of the network

I used text editor to check for common terms used in a reverse shell script but I didn't find anything. Still I am not 100% confident.

Do you mean to check, if your PDF file is infected with a virus?? As, it's not all that clear, from your question.

If you are talking about viruses, there are a number of apps, that could do that for you (available for Linux).

Another on the subject here... checking the binary data may be helpful, if you know what to look for?

eg:
