Do you think this is a security risk and if not is it a bad UI decision?

I'm saying that if a bug report has been closed due to the change being 
a deliberate design decision, reopening the bug isn't going to change 
the fact that it was a deliberate design decision. The appropriate place 
to discuss deliberate design decisions is a forum where said decisions 
are made, ie not Bugzilla.
