Particularly helpful Moodlers

Not sure this is a security issue with 'insecure dataroot', but, rather, a confiiguration issue with the site.  There a few ways to assure that only your students register for your courses.  Put a key on the courses.  When/if a guest user registers an account in Moodle via EMail based authentication and then attempts to enter the course, they are prompted to provide the key (a phrase/line of text) which can only be obtained by the teacher in the course.  Change the key after all your true students have signed up.
