Testing of condition of alert

I tested the doc file to see when the alert is sent. I downloaded the canarytoken file and added your fake details to the file. I password protected the file just to add to the authentication that the file is real.

So there are two password settings for a word doc.

  1. to access the file

  2. to read and write.

It is not till you enter the password successfully and selecting read only or , does the alert get sent. Not when they try entering the wrong password, just a successful access.

The alerts vary in how they perform between different versions of word and the OS. The tokens are tricking Word to do something its not really supposed to do so different versions perform slightly differently. Thanks.
