Avoid logging sensitive data

Summary

The system must not register sensitive information when logging exceptional events.

Description

While event logging is generally a good security practice, the organization must consider that using high logging levels is only appropriate for development environments, since having too much log information in production stages may hinder the performance of a system administrator in detecting abnormal conditions. Furthermore, if sensitive information is recorded in the logs, an attacker that gets access to these can also obtain the information.
