    When a user logs into their ftp space via an ftp client such as cuteftp they can view everyone else's log files. In order to do this you append '_logs' to the username. In other words logging into ftp using:
    username = username_logs
    password = password

    They get a full listing of everyone's log files, can download and view them. This doesn't happen on all accounts just a few.

    Any ideas how to patch this up?

    Maybe you'd like to send that to cPanel instead of publicly posting that here.

    If the voices in my head are correct, you can change the CHMOD of the files via tweak settings in WHM. I also have the logs purged each time the logrunner runs.. this way the user can choose to keep those logs themselves and not tie up valuable space.

    I think I saw this about a year back and switched to pure_ftp from pro ftp to get rid of that.
