Elmah.axd (Error Logging Modules and Handlers) is an error tracking tool for ASP.NET applications. It catches errors in your application and stores them in a database, email address, or other destination.

Elmah.axd catches a variety of error types, including:

  • Application errors
  • Exception errors
  • SQL errors
  • AJAX errors
  • Web API errors

To use Elmah.axd, you need to add the Elmah.dll file to your application. Then, you need to copy the Elmah.axd file to the root directory of your application.

To configure Elmah.axd, you need to add an Elmah configuration to your application's web.config file. This configuration determines how Elmah will work.

Using Elmah.axd, you can more easily catch and analyze errors in your application. This can help you to fix your errors and ensure that your application is more stable.

Here are some of the basic features of the Elmah.axd file:

  • It catches errors and stores them in a database, email address, or other destination.
  • It captures the details of errors, so you can more easily understand the cause of errors.
  • It categorizes errors, so you can more easily track error types.
  • It allows you to filter errors, so you can focus on only the errors that you are interested in.

However, making Elmah.axd file publicly accessible can create the following cybersecurity risks:

  • Privacy violation: Elmah.axd file contains information about the errors in your application. This information may include user credentials, sensitive data, and information about vulnerabilities in your application. If this information is compromised by a malicious actor, it can be used to steal user identities, leak sensitive data, or gain unauthorized access to your application.
  • Attack planning: Elmah.axd file contains information about how your application is being exposed to attacks. This information can be used by a malicious actor to plan new attacks against your application.
  • Application security assessment: Elmah.axd file contains information about vulnerabilities in your application. This information can be used by a malicious actor to learn about your application's vulnerabilities and exploit them.
