logfiles - Computer Definition
The area on a computer system where, according to crackers, “interesting” events are stored. Interesting events can include the logging in and logging out of users, access to certain applications (such as mail, FTP, and Web pages), system startup, system shutdown, and error messages. Crackers typically try to hide their tracks by altering the contents of logfiles to delete entries caused by their malicious acts.
