Why is Veritas exposing people's email addresses???

In the new Downloads option, there is a downloads history log.   I see hundreds of people's email addresses who have downloaded things and what they have downloaded.   Is this supposed to be a feature or a bug?

I thought the function was only supposed to list what I have downloaded in the past.

@erickt , are you referring to the new Veritas Download Center :   https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/downloads.html
or the Downloads section within the various VOX communities? 
e.g. https://vox.veritas.com/t5/Downloads/tkb-p/Downloads-Backup-and-Recovery

@AlexMatts - your thoughts?

Hello –

While I am not able to replicate a user experience on either platform, I'm including my colleague @kellyromer on this response to ensure his awareness.

And @erickt—could you please share additional details on the specific platform, associated URL, and interaction so our teams may replicate?

Well it was on this page but its gone now.   There was a downloads link on the right of the page and when you clicked it, you got a list of people's names and email addresses and what they had downloaded.  There were hundreds of pages and the emails were from around the world.  I guess it was resolved but it sure looked it didn't belong there.
