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

Reminds me of the famous case when someone could login while sitting 
down but not when they were standing up. The reason turned out to be 
that their keyboard layout was slightly non-standard and the keycodes 
didn't agree with keycaps. When they were sitting, they touch-typed and 
hit the correct keys, but when they were standing, they hunt-and-pecked 
and got the wrong keys.
