I'll use whatever wording everyone can agree on, but I really don't see
much difference between "which may compromise security on your system"
and "which is bad for security". "may compromise" doesn't see any more
alarmist than "bad". Frankly, "bad" is a very generic term.

I think the reason behind the large banner has less to do how insecure
the system is, and more about making sure vendors and sysadmins don't
enable it by default everywhere.
