Ticket #9367 (closed defect: obsolete)
Excessive messages generated by vboxwebsrv
|Reported by:||sergeroz||Owned by:|
|Version:||VirtualBox 4.1.0||Keywords:||vboxwebsrv log|
Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
vboxwebsrv that is run by /etc/init.d/vboxweb-service writes 2 logs to /var/log/messages for every successfull authentication attempt:
Aug 3 17:05:15 fserver vboxwebsrv: pam_sm_authenticate: Called Aug 3 17:05:15 fserver vboxwebsrv: pam_sm_authenticate: username = [vbox]
This leads to flooding of /var/log/messages, especially when vboxwebsrv is used by phpVirtualbox.
Suggested fix: log only failed authentication attempts by default, OR allow user to specify different log facility/priority.
