Correct, I tell that from experience because I've seen many

If we leave it that way the attackers will be more happy, it's not
decision to patch it or not, just a hint .

FILE privileges equate to ALL ADMIN privileges.

Maybe because you might not want admins to have read/write access to the
filesystem anyway?
