Description Rudolf Kollien 2014-08-05 06:22:38 UTC
When openening LO without choosing an component (writer/calc/etc), the start page displayes the last opened documents for fast access. Unfortunately the thumbnails show partially the content(!) of password/access protected documents. This is only a small view of the document, but in our case it was a big, big fail. Such documents should, or better must, be displayed with anonymized content or with a placeholder image like OSX does, when it cannot open files in icon mode preview. Showing parts of the content of confidental files are a big security problem.

Hi Rudolf,

Thank you for reporting the bug. This behaviour doesnt effect libreoffice 4.2, if you prefer to use that until this issue has been resolved.
