makes the security risk worse?

Yes, I agree. I take your meaning to be that, since NetServlet.java uses
public APIs of the NetworkServerControl class, anyone who wanted a more
capable and/or secure implementation could build their own servlet code,
using the NetServlet.java code as a starting point. Is that what you meant?
