Default Treacherous metadata in company documents

From http://www.h-online.com/security/fea...s-1233053.html

Office documents can contain metadata such as names, storage locations and version information about the software used to create them. An attacker can exploit this information for targeted attacks. The free tool Foca shows how talkative a company's downloadable documents are.
