Perhaps I should have asked this in the Beginner's forum but it is a security related question. 

How important is it to secure the JBoss/Tomcat Status page? e.g. domain.com/status

If an application handles secret URLs with a unique key rather than relying on a login e.g.

and that web page renders content which is a secret hosted file:

Users then exchange the links to a recipient with the private URL.
The files are fetched with a HTTP GET request. What are the implications
of having the status page publicly available. Would there be a slight
security risk of someone seeing the GET requests on this page and 
accessing the content?
