Describing likely security problems as mere denial of service is a sort of downgrade. Some people do so further, downgrading such things to "bug fixes". Strictly speaking such terms are not incorrect, and such descriptions may be defensible (do you describe everything as the maximum *possible* damage it can do?) But this type of action is the "cover up" being described.
I think that was quite evident.
