'.log' File Detection

Info

Synopsis

The remote web server is hosting .log files.

Description

The remote web server is hosting .log files. Distributing such files over the web can be done, but the webmaster should make sure that they do not contain confidential data. '.log' files are typically log files that may contain information regarding local applications and settings.

Solution

Ensure that confidential data is not present within the '.log' file. Note: PVS only reports on the first occurence of this item on a web server. Parse your entire web source for similar occurrences.
