Comment (by westi):

 Replying to [ticket:5260 bradleyt]:
 > I was taking a look at the Codex, and noticed a link to the
 https://codex.wordpress.org/Special:ListFiles page (Warning: the first
 image is NSFW). It looks like this page lists all image files which have
 been uploaded to the Codex, presumably for use across the various
 documentation pages that exist.
 > It seems any logged-in user can upload to the Codex, leading to some
 unsavoury images. Stumbling across NSFW images is an extremely poor
 experience, especially is someone new to WordPress were to find their way
 to this page.
 > This File List page can be indexed by Google (I've not checked to see if
 it has been), so there is a potential SEO impact here.
 > I can't see any legitimate images having been uploaded for a couple of
 years, so would it be possible to only allow a small number of trusted
 users use the upload facility? Alternatively (or perhaps additionally)
 could the File List page be hidden or removed in some way?

 I have deleted the NSFW image from the codex.
