Magnetic_dud Posted November 2, 2019 Report Share Posted November 2, 2019 While searching ways to free up space in my system SSD, with spacesniffer i noticed huge logs in appdata/roaming/bittorrent sync and appdata/roaming/resilio. Those logs were 10gb big, and they kept the history of all my explorer.exe browsing. went to c:\secretfolder\secretfile on 24th april 2016 at 13.59? Logged! This imho is a big privacy issue, as this file indicates which folders and files are most accessed, can be useful to ransomware (encrypt most popular files first) or for forensic investigations, find file names with compromising names that were deleted long ago / see how often and when accessed those files. Also, writing logs like this, for no valid reason, is detrimental to the SSD life Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
