maemo.org Bugzilla – Full Text Bug Listing
|Summary:||Bugzilla List open to e-mail harvesting|
|Product:||[Websites] maemo.org Website||Reporter:||Bill <peteb>|
|Component:||Bugzilla||Assignee:||Marcell Lengyel <marcell>|

While Bugzilla is a very useful tool, in my mind it has a major flaw in that unregistered (not logged in)users have free access to the bug reporters e-mail address. Does this not open up anybody who uses this site to e-mail harvesting? Please suppress the e-mail address on all postings (use the alias instead). Had I known that there were no preference settings to protect my email address (from non-registered users) I would not have posted a bug (or registered)at all. I would like to continue to use the bug reporting system as it provides a very useful service. Thank-you, Bill
Thanks for your feedback. Email harvesting is a possibility, however, this cannot be fixed easily. Gnome bugzilla does this by showing email addresses only users who are logged in.
Moved to correct Product and Component.
Marcell: this is already implemented?
An e-mail hiding patch has been applied to maemo bugzilla, it should not not show e-mail addresses to anonymous users anymore. Please reopen and provide a link if there are still some e-mail address leaks with anonymous access.
Closing FIXED bugs. if error/problem still occurs, please reopen bug with comments.
