PDF oops.

I just received a note mentioning that among the list of publicly available documents about products that have undergone Common Criteria security evaluations, there's one about a Sony smartcard that has large sections marked "REMOVED".

What's interesting is that the sections aren't really removed. They're still there in the PDF document — even though they're invisible, you can select the empty space in a PDF viewer and paste the text elsewhere. Or you can just look at Google's HTML version of the document, which reveals all.
