Dr. Gavin W. Manes, Avansic's CEO, was featured in a news story regarding the potential metadata available on photographs posted on social media sites.

Below is an excerpt of the story:
"Manes runs a computer forensics company in Tulsa, called Avansic, that specializes in tracking down digital data. That hidden data can tell people all kinds of things about us, even when we don't want them to know it.

Such was the case with John McAfee, the computer anti-virus guru. He was on the run from police and the media a few years ago and claimed to be in hiding in Belize.

But someone took and posted a picture of him and the metadata gave away his true location.

'If we look at the image information or the metadata in that information, we can see it was taken with an iPhone 4. Scroll down to GPS location. In this case, we'll look at it with Google maps. We start zooming out and we realize he's actually in Guatemala, not Belize,' Manes said."
