How easily can someone access my web directory or tree and/or hide folders
Posted on 2008-01-24
We want to have web galleries of children's portraits on our web site in a secure section. We are going to email the parents with the exact link to their own child's gallery. It will be an alfanumeric folder on the root directory of the site with no links from anywhere on the web site.
Can someone access my entire web directory and find folders that way?
I expect that a dedicated hacker can get into anything. I'm not worried about that. I am worried that a father/mother may everyone that it's easy to access all the images.
Everyone I know that is reasonably web/computer savy can't access the images without knowing the link. I'm trying to determine how correct that is. If you can comment, I'd appreciate it.
BTW, please do not tell me/post how to do it if you know, I just want to know the degree of expertise it takes. We do not want to use passwords. Our trial with that was not good. We ned to have a customer click the link we email them and they're on their own chidl's gallery immediately.
