Don't use PDF Files to distribute sensitive information

Especially if you're the Department of Justice, and you don't properly lock down your PDF. When you post a censored report online, make sure you lock it down properly so guys like this can't un-censor the report. From the site:

With no notice, the Justice Department recently posted to its Website a long-awaited report. Justice spent $2 million for a study on the racial and gender diversity of its attorney workforce. The report has been complete for almost two years, but the Department stalled its release, despite numerous Freedom of Information Act requests.

The report appeared on one of the FOIA sections of the Department's Website sometime in October. It's one of the most heavily-redacted government documents in recent memory. Even Congress' report on 9/11 had a smaller percentage of its contents blacked out. The Memory Hole has posted a version with no redactions; instead, those sections are highlighted in yellow, so you can easily zoom in on the parts originally deemed too embarrassing for us to see.

Here's an article summarizing the contents of the report.
