Whenever I look over at server logs, I run into a bunch of failed fraud/hacking attempts. Mostly just failed attempts to access config files and what not. This is never that big of a issue for me
since I try to always use security through obscurity practices and so far all of the attempts have failed. Should I really be concerned with these?
I've read over Ruby On Rails Security Guide (http://guides.rubyonrails.org/security.html), but was wondering if there were some more detailed resources out there.
I was also wondering if it was advisable to set up something to automatically scan my logs to search for malicious attempts.
== Edit ==
Okay, so I did so more reading and realized I had misunderstood "security through obscurity." I am not trying to protect the system through obscurity. Basically, I have followed Rails Guide. I'm wondering if i'm being paranoid or if I should be trying to put more serious measures in place. The attempts I've found look auto generated.
