Michael: Its URIBurner as opposed to URI Burner :-)


We do have to shed some light on the security vulnerability aspects of 
this feature, making "*" the default pattern does introduce issues such 
as loss of forensic fidelity (accorded by HTTP logs). In the jungle 
known as the InterWeb there is always room for deliberate or inadvertent 
denial of service. Thus, servers need to be able to protect themselves 
with high fidelity via configuration.

Some Links worth digesting:

note and sanity check
