Description Alistair 2014-07-29 09:26:58 UTC
Problem description:

Information from private documents saved with a password for security and privacy is leaked through the StartCenter.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Open a top-secret password-protected document
2. Close all open documents
3. Look at the top-secret document's thumbnail in the StartCentre to read some of its contents.

Current behavior:

StartCenter displayes thumbnails of all documents.

Expected behavior:

No thumbnail should be displayed or created if a document is saved with a password.  Not only is this visible in the StartCentre, but presumably the unencrypted content from the thumbnail is kicking around in memory even if it is removed from the StartCentre.

Operating System: All
Version: rc
Last worked in: rc
