  • Milestone Awaiting Review deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

The same occurs in most of /wp-includes/*.php and /wp-admin/includes/*.php

However, this is not a security issue, nor is it something that intends on being "fixed" as it's not encountered during "standard usage". If WordPress is used on a production server, error displays should be disabled, and/or direct access to the php files in the above directories disabled.
