Oh boy, they should have stripped metadata from those PDFs.



What did you find? There's nothing that interesting that I could see.

What did you find? Or what can be in it?


Author: GRIFFIN, Richard (LGL/TLU) is all I could find.


Maybe the file was stolen from phewitso:s computer? Or someone who actually knew what they were doing and adjusted the metadata.


using pdftk, I see little more than author's name, chapter/bookmark titles, and dates. Anything else in there?
