[BUG] - Unauthorized cache page Edit

An unpublished cache of ours was (I believe inadvertently) edited by person filing a log (not related to the unlisted/unpublished cache).

 

The apparent 'Found It' log shows up in the Hint field. It does not contain the username or other info usually associated with a log, just the log body itself.

 

The cache in question has never been placed, the page is held simply for future use. Due to the fact that this cache was never published or even submitted, it is highly unlikely that (most) anyone can obtain access to the page. The sad thing is, somebody posted a nice log and it may well be lost to them.

Most interesting. I was able to locate the actual log: http://coord.info/GL3X6NEN.

 

There should be no way for the database to get confused on this, as cache data and log data are kept in separate tables and ne'er the twain shall meet. I'm wondering if some third-party logging tool was used.

How about the simple explanation, that CO has used his unpublished cache description as a rot13 decrypt tool? (And forgot about pasting this log there.)

There are a lot of things I forget nowadays..... but that isn't one of them. :)

Besides, we don't encrypt logs.

 

A good response, nonetheless. TY
