#4786: Recent Entries widget caches Private Post titles

     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new           
 Priority:  normal    |   Milestone:  2.4 (future)  
Component:  Security  |     Version:  2.2.2         
 Severity:  normal    |    Keywords:  cache, private
 Recent Entries widget uses wp_cache_*() functions if ENABLE_CACHE is
 However, if a user with the capability to 'read_private_posts' is logged
 in and triggered wp_cache_add(), private posts (only titles, though) are
 also cached and displayed to the public/unregistered viewers for the
 lifetime of the cache, effectively bypassing the is_user_logged_in() and
 current_user_can() in WP_Query::get_posts().
