- From the advisory:

If exploited, this vulnerability might permit code execution
with the privileges of the authenticated user and may
therefore allow bypassing restricted shell/command
configurations.

So based on that it sounds like a security issue.

Please use CVE-2013-4548 for this issue.

CC'ing Markus in case he already requested a CVE.
