    If I uploaded a zip file which was created on a mac say for instance including images of penises, vaginas and busoms..

    Would you be able to tell it was created by me using properties etc?

    I am doing some black hat PDF's which are being sold in zip format and it occurred to me when I click properties or in my case "get info" I can see my computer name and originator.

    Back soon with some more dumb ass but exceptionally hilarious posts that illustrate my dum.

    The zip file won't show anything I don't think. But then again, I don't use a Mac. But yeah . . . If you created the PDF with Acrobat, often the computer's owner name will show up in the tool tip/properties.

    Here's a simple solution that will remove that info and allow you to put any info in that you want. Go to the page below and look for a free app called "PDF Info":

    WizEdit: Sorry . . . that link didn't work. Try this:

    http://lmgtfy.com/?q=PDF+Info

    That will do the trick for you :)

    Brilliant... what about word documents and so on...

    Currenty I am sending the zips and asking people to check them and the contents in mac and PC mode... is this enough to safegaurd myself, if they are not able to see any author details?

    Currently the author details are shown but I think only on the personal machine.
