Are thumbnailers etc prevented from thumbnailing the private directory?

Asked by Shaun Crampton

Intrepid introduced the new Private directory in the user's home directory. To prevent information leakage, thumbnailers etc should be forbidden from entering the directory (or should store their thumbnails inside the private dir). Has this been considered/solved?

This is a good question, and a valid concern.

We should turn this into a bug report, as it will need to be handled through additional code and/or bug fixes.


Can you help with this problem?
