Police blunder unmasks secret files o.O

Recommended Posts

A police blunder in a major drugs investigation has revealed the identity of confidential informants and undercover officers and their secret intelligence-gathering techniques.

A Southland Times investigation has discovered that the serious breach occurred after police handed over heavily censored electronic documents to those charged in the investigation.

But, as one of the defendants quickly discovered, the blacked-out sections of the documents can easily be restored to view, revealing the highly sensitive material.

Am I reading this right? Are they asking for the electronic documents back?


like asking "send me that email back, it wasn't meant for you"?


Or do the cops use some super duper copy protection that no-one else knows about and they just hand out disks with stuff on them?



Adobe PDF with layers not hidden/locked/flattened .... lol
