Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Questions with proprietary or confidential information

In a recent question on SuperUser (not including the link, since it will further spread the sensitive info), the user included Windows XP Pro license keys in their question.

While these were immediately edited out, anyone that knows how to use the site will simply go to the edit history and grab them.

Since questions like these may be valid but contain sensitive info, what is the course of action? Delete it? Or is there a moderator/high rep tool that can modify edit history?

If not, a tool like this may be needed for high rep users/moderators to permanently remove sensitive information like this.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You could just flag it to moderators to erase/merge those revisions.
