Although it requires the master password, it seems like a security hole to allow this open to the world on the logged out home page. It could easily be bruteforced. How can I hide it?

Thanks.

Of course, merely hiding the link without also disabling the web services that perform the actual db operations wouldn't prevent brute force attacks.

Agreed! Would be great to disable it entirely (aside from say, localhost access). Also to start requiring a captcha after too many failed attempts, or similar.
