Whatever security-related issue could potentially be useful to web :)

My format is just sample, BTW a security module for a web or desktop
application can generate such a file. For example see Windows NT
system events holds "Type", "Date", "Time", "Source", "Category",
"Event", "User" and "Computer".

I mailed here because could not find a NORMAL log file. My desktop is
single user, so my own windows logfile is not comprehensive enough
(randomly-generated log may not help, because it is cannot be used to
test the system).
