It's not a security issue. It's a privacy issue. Very different beasts.
Very important beasts, but the only thing they have in common is the
number of legs they have.
The underlying issue is similar to many bugtraq issues: what used to be
a common, acceptable coding practice no longer is. But man, things like
"security issue" are rapidly becoming an aspect of Godwin's law:
phrases that are overused and used improperly, and mostly indicating
the end of useful dicussion and the entrance into the world of
political and emotional rhetoric.
