Yes, log files and cache may contains 'sensitive' 
information, as explained in the hts-log.txt file:

"Information, Warnings and Errors reported for this 

note:	the hts-log.txt file, and hts-cache folder, 
may contain sensitive information,
	such as username/password authentication for 
websites mirrored in this project
	do not share these files/folders if you want 
these information to remain private"

The problem when hiding username/pwd, is the 
difficulty to trace problems, when mirroring, using 
logfiles. Besides, the username/password has to be 
stored in the cache/profile, so that you can restart 
or update the mirror!
