Summary0008982: Google Toolbar will index your secured RSS feed
Description

If a user accesses a secure Mantis RSS feed (secured via token) from a browser that has Google Toolbar installed, then Google will go ahead and index these RSS feeds. Although Internet users won't be able to access the issues, they will be able to view the first couple of lines.

It would be interesting to see what can be done from Mantis side, specially for installations where some projects are public and others are private or projects are public with some private issues. In the case where no indexing is required at all, then adding a robots.txt file would do the trick. But in this scenario, we may want to alert the administrator to take such action.
