Messages tab visible to non-group members


(Joshua Rosenfeld) #1


When loading a group page for a group I do not belong to, I can see the Messages tab on the left.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Navigate to a group page you are not a part of.
  2. Look at left menu

Expected Results:

See 4 buttons, Posts, Topics, Mentions, Members

Actual Results:

See 5 buttons, Posts, Topics, Mentions, Members, Messages


While the Messages button is there and can be clicked, no messages are shown so there does not appear to be a major privacy/security issue here.
