A user on SOja found that his sensitive information was post as a comment. I, as a moderator, edited that comment to remove that sensitive information, but is this enough?

Moderators can view the edit history of a comment, and I confirmed that the information is remained in a revision. Can I redact that revision of a comment? If so, how to do so?

    You can't... The revision history is only visible to mods... Non-mods can see a comment has been edited (and how many times) but not what any past revisions were... so it's a fairly moot point. – Jon Clements May 14 at 4:54

    ...and as per the moderator agreement, they are forbidden from disclosing that info or using it beyond functions necessary to carry out their duties as a moderator. – Sonic the Bracketed Hedgehog May 14 at 5:05

As pointed out in the comments by Jon Clements and Sonic the Inclusive Hedgehog: it's not possible, and not likely to be implemented either.

Non-mods can see a comment has been edited (and how many times) but not what any past revisions were. The revision history [itself] is only visible to mods...

...and as per the moderator agreement, they are forbidden from disclosing that info or using it beyond functions necessary to carry out their duties as a moderator.
