When creating this ticket, was "Do not report potential security vulnerabilities here. See the Security FAQ and contact security@…." not noticeable? Honest question. If you have JavaScript enabled, you additionally would have needed to click a checkbox affirming "I am not reporting a security issue — report security issues to security@…".
