Bugzilla gives your email address out to the world

Why are peoples email addresses turning up in a Google search, for everyone here that posted a bug report?
This is a serious security problem.

Hide member e-mails from publicly accessible sites?

Post by hackdog » Tue Jul 19, 2011 3:02 pm

Could someone please investigate if it's possible to hide member e-mails from publicly accessible ReactOS sites, such as BugZilla? Because to my surprise, e-mails are visible in BugZilla even when not logged in, and I don't want my private e-mail address being harvested by spam crawlers. For the moment, I've redirected mine via SpamGourmet.com but it shouldn't be too hard to configure this properly in BugZilla.

On some boards I've been on, I would be more concerned about individual users getting my e-mail address.
