MS Word Docs hosts security relevant metadata
Hi list,

according to an article in the german computer-zine c't ms-word documents
hosts security relevant metadata, as paths, hostnames, ip's and so on.

If you send doc-data via email you'll provide a potential attacker
with such information, that can be helpfull to compromise your network.

So it seems to be a good idea to filter all outgoing mail with such attachments
and convert automagically into pdf.
