Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11048) Audit Log should escape control characters
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2016 21:07:58 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11048?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15645452#comment-15645452

Eric Badger commented on HDFS-11048:

All backslashes in the input will be printed in the audit log as actual backslashes, because
they will be escaped by StringEscapeUtils and replaced with double backslashes. So when they
are actually printed, the double backslash will be escaped and you will see a single backslash.
All control characters such as "\r" and "\n" will also be escaped and printed in their escaped

You can walk through the {{TestAuditLogs#testAuditCharacterEscape}} test in a debugger to
see how the backslashes are escaped using {{StringEscapeUtils.escapeJavaStyleString()}}

> Allowing control characters without escaping them allows for spoofing audit log entries
at worst and accidentally breaking log parsing at best.
