- More information:
Hartmut Goebel discovered that MAT, a toolkit to anonymise/remove metadata from files did not remove metadata from images embededed in PDF documents.
For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 0.5.2-3+deb8u1. This update disables PDF support in MAT entirely.
We recommend that you upgrade your mat packages.
