Are files in a hidden directory safe?
Let's pretend that I have a website and want to keep personal notes on it.
If I make a directory like mysite.com/84eW93e7 or mysite.com/34aWe897.txt
where the letters and numbers are random so randomly guessing the file or directory name are impractical.
How secure is this directory? Could someone still discover the existence of the file or directory assuming directory listing is off? If so, how would they find out?
Of course this isn't something I would do, I'm just curious.
