Typically it is unsecure yes, but not always. For instance on my ubuntu
laptop where I am the one and only user I do not think that is an issue.

Its easy to fix your PATH to solve it, but only once you know that is
the issue, just a check to catch the situation and give a warning is a
sufficient solution.
