Subject Re: Access denied on bugzilla ...

Dennis, please have a look into the history of the issue [1]. Here you 
can see that *Pedro has not* set the assignee. The reason is the BZ 
setting of the "security" component he has chosen at issue creation. So, 
it's not wrong that the issue was send to the security team.

We should think about not rooting these kind of issues to the security team.
