Security reports in bugzilla?

I have noticed that in bugzilla, you can't flag a problem as a security problem. I think it would be important for gnome to report bugs which may be security hazards. It becomes more and more important that systems shows a high level of security, and that developers are conscious of security implications in their development. As gnome brings more and more features, it may evolve as a security nighmare like windows products if we are not careful.

I think with the possibility to flag a problem as a security threat, will bring the attention of the developers on limiting the security problems of their applications.

What do you think?

Also, there should be a task force, in charge to monitor any security announcement related to gnome and report it back to developers. Maybe it should be added in the weekly gnome summaries.
