This is really cool: some scientists decoded the info that
color printers put on the pages to make the documents
traceable, and also wrote a software that anonymizes the
documents again when they are printed out. sweet.

That's important. Now even if a document is traced to someone they can claim or even be correct, that someone must have spoofed my printer's id.

It reduces the weight just this information has in prosecuting someone.

Nice to see!

Interesting article here:

https://blog.erratasec.com/2017/06/how-intercept-outed-reality-winner.html

 How The Intercept Outed Reality Winner
Today, The Intercept released documents on election tampering from an NSA leaker. Later, the arrest warrant request for an NSA contractor named "Reality Winner" was published, showing how they tracked her down because she had printed out the documents and sent them to The Intercept. The document posted by the Intercept isn't the original PDF file, but a PDF containing the pictures of the printed version that was then later scanned in.

Nice that it also points out The Intercept's part played in outing her.

looked for stuff like that.
wikileaks is better for leaking, methinks.
