Subject [jira] [Commented] (HDFS-11048) Audit Log should escape control characters
Date Mon, 07 Nov 2016 21:42:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HDFS-11048?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15645558#comment-15645558

Allen Wittenauer commented on HDFS-11048:

bq.  I can think of one pretty contrived case where I think this might cause less than ideal

That's my point.  I'm looking at this from the point of view of what is in the log.   "\thisfile"
is ambiguous.  That's super bad.

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