Privacy Bug when Requesting to be Added to Trusted List of Unlisted Profile

When a person is still living, their profiles are Unlisted and their names are generally obscured as "Living Smith" for example.  However, I found that when I click the link in an Unlisted profile to send a trusted list request, their name on that page is unobscured.  For instance, the header says "Request to Join Trusted List of John Smith".

I have to imagine this is not intended as it partially defeats the purpose of having unlisted profiles.  Should this be corrected?

Thanks, Brian. We made an emergency fix. Luckily this was only showing the first names to logged-in members.
