Description

A WS_FTP.LOG file was found in the web root. These files are created by the WS_FTP program when transferring files. Sometimes these files inadvertently get transferred into the web root.

A WS_FTP.LOG file is a serious information leak as it can contain information about hidden files and directories on the web root, as well as information about usernames and hostnames used to transfer files to/from the web server.
