Default log access by ssh jailed user

A ssh jailed user cannot access its log folder.

In web root there is a link name "log" but the access is denied.

Can I allow shh user to view its logs?

Is it dangerous?

Jailed users can not access the logs as they can not follow a symlink which points to a directory outside of their jail. So only unjailed ssh users can access logs, but thats dangerous as they can access other files as well.

You can accessthe log files e.g. by ftp.
