Subject Authorization on Server Handlers
Date Sun, 21 Feb 2010 15:37:17 GMT
Dear Devs,

i was playing around with CouchDB 0.10.0 and i was wondering, why its  
possible to
trigger compaction unauthorized, i am also able to view _log. i am not  
ready yet, just
testing other handlers too. Alltogether i think thats a Security Issue  
or there a reason for
this, i do not know?

Just take a look at ;-)

I think these Informations should be hidden for Guest-Users. I am  
going to learn Erlang
in the next couple of days,weeks, month but for now i could not  
provide a patch for this.
Chris guess this would be a simple One-Line Patch with check_is_admin.  
I think i can do this
next week.

what do you think?

thx alot.
