Why not? Which problem does the disclosure create? This ticket is missing the description of an actual problem.

Also note that Bugzilla is free software. Anyone can inspect its source code as it is available to public.

Thanks for the bug report! I can understand how from a different context (of closed source web apps) this could be a problem,
but our source code is not a secret. 

Note that we do filter stack traces -- stack traces can show the filename and even the method names, but not the arguments to those methods (this isn't the case with this error, which has no trace).

If you think the error message should be friendlier, you could submit a pull request against the repo.
The offending code is here; https://github.com/mozilla-bteam/bmo/blob/master/Bugzilla/WebService/Server/REST.pm#L375-L378.

Otherwise I'll close this as WONTFIX as there many other things that need fixing.

In the future if you find something that might be a security bug on bugzilla.mozilla.org, please use this form:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/form.web.bounty as it will ensure the bug is created in a security group (to prevent it from being totally public, as this bug is) until a person has time to look at it.
