Recently there's been news about a way to track who reads a Word document.
Here's a URL (which may be wrapped)
http://www.privacyfoundation.org/advisories/advWordBugs.html that details
the issue.

What I don't understand it why this is getting news, and the fact that
something very similiar could hand someone enough information to gain your
userid and password is not. Here's URL detailing the "Network File Resource
Vulnerability". Which alse may be wrapped.

have tested some of the methods used in this link (on people behind
firewalls) and it works like a charm.
