How can it be a security issue...?

I'm going to fix the easy one, TW, Leap 42.3 and SLE15.

But the rest for the older versions, it's just a pain to backport, and the risk of breakage is higher than gain.

For addressing this on the older versions, we'd need lots of more other backports, and this is significantly risky.

Since the issue is no serious security issue, I leave SLE12 and older versions as is.

Back to security team.
