XF 1.4 News Feed Permission Issue

#1
I am currently logged into my site under my test account, which has registered user permissions only. As my test user I have been looking around to see what the registered members see. I looked under my news feed and found a post written by my admin account, from a private forum that registered users shouldn't be seeing anything from. I then clicked the link to the thread to view it as the registered user and received the error page. Did I miss a setting somewhere? Registered users should not be seeing anything from forums they can't access. I would think that this would carry over to the new feed also. What am I missing or is this how it works? If it is how it works, how do we lock it down?

There's really no reason for this to happen -- there are full permission checks on the news feed. Can you perhaps show us a link where we can see the specific problem? Can you show the analyze permission output for the specific forum in question (for your test user)?
