 Description  « Hide

When Grizzly throws an "Invalid URI character encoding" exception, the URI is part of the stack trace but the HTTP request info isn't saved on the access log.
This is a problem if the request URI makes it obvious that the requester is trying an exploit/vulnerability.
Without the access log used, there is no way of seeing the IP/hostname of the requester to identify the source of this attack attempt.
