Ask.com server-log leak is showing your searches


Here is part of the accidentally displayed server logs.

While a leak of personal information is never a good thing, Ask.com’s public display of its server log[1] this morning seems fairly benign. The log shows IP addresses, as well as the search queries and outgoing links related to them. The leak was spotted by Paul Shapiro and posted to his Twitter feed.

It’s a reminder of how easily information can be made public by accident.

And for the person who searched for “dog heat,” I suggest that now is a good time to get her spayed.

Ask.com did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
