Don’t post Word docs!

Woody’s Office Watch #8.50 has more examples of Word docs posted on the web with information stored in them that probably shouldn’t be there. Docs from the Department of Homeland Security, the Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, the Chief Security Architect from Dell (!) (some of the links will probably be dead or lead to docs that have had the information talked about removed — at least I hope so!). Names and ids of the folks who edited them are in there as well as the locations of the files on the users’ drive, not to mention complete revision histories!

Be careful. Think about what you’re doing. Pay attention.

  1. Actually, I found the information in Word to be easily manipulated, though if you don’t pay attention, you can certainly tell someone more than you should. Newt’s is still there.
