100 Log Management uses #34 Error handling in the web server

Today we conclude our series on OWASP vulnerabilities with a look at A6 — error handling in the web server. Careless or non-configuration of error handling in a web server gives a hacker quite a lot of useful information about the structure of your web application. While careful configuration can take care of many issues, hackers will still probe your application deliberately triggering error conditions to see what information is there to be had. In this video we look at how you can use web server logs to detect whether you are being probed by a potential hacker.
