 I am having this issue.

 WordPress 4.7.4
 BuddyPress 2.8.2
 bbPress 2.5.12

 Group is set as private.
 The group's Forum is set as public.

 The forum is (correctly) not accessible to non-members of the group.
 However new discussions and replies generate BuddyPress activity items
 which are visible to all users of the site including non-members.

 I have tried:
 - Setting the forum as private too - but then it didn't even show up in
 the group. I got "This group does not currently have a forum." on the
 Forum tab of the group's page.
 - Using the Repair tools "Recalculate private and hidden forums" and
 "Repair BuddyPress Group Forum relationships".
 - Removing the forum from the Group and adding it back again.
 - Setting the Group as Public and then back to Private again (since it
 seemed like that might trigger the fix committed on this trac ticket)

 None of these solved it.

 I'm happy to do whatever I can to help diagnose this further, but I'm not
 really sure what else to try at this point.
