I don't think that google will index such a file. 
Nevertheless also have a look at your webmaster tools > crawler access. 
Disallow the crawler from accessing fileadmin. 

Besides also consider the naw_secure configurations in extension  manager. 

There you see a config 'cachetimeadd'. This is the time a link remains 
After this period of time the file is no longer accessable via the same 

Is it possible to fix this? Well, certainly possible, but I am not sure if 
it's not intentional.
You can simply prevent the extension setting $this->feuser = 0.
But you should better ask the developers.

So long

[TYPO3-english]  Extension naw_securedl bug or intentional?

Hi Stefan
Thanks for your quick reply.
I agree that the behavior is not directly a security issue.
But I'm more concerned about the search engine robots potentially crawling 
and indexing files. For instance if a BE user has Google Toolbar installed 
in the browser he uses for BE access. Whenever Google detects a freely 
open link, it might want to follow that link and ultimately index the 
content being served from that link.
Do you think it would be possible to simply modify the extension to not 
serve files for BE users?
