Do you think this modification is needed?

http://www.question2answer.org/qa/50886/q2a-1-7-4-security-release

https://github.com/q2a/question2answer/commit/fd628cf33ad71be01f3c9b7b144e5a5f53d9e57d

There is no description about vulnerability in Scott post. Therefore, I can not understand the need for this change.

Is it really this is necessary? ? ?

Hello,
According to Scott, the following were fixed in 1.7.4

Admin security fix and other minor improvements, 14th March 2016.
  • Various minor fixes to SnowFlat theme. ----> not applicable to pqa
  • Support Wordpress database port. -----> not a major upgrade
  • Disable SSL checks in email if SMTP security is disabled. ------> not a major fix
  • Only allow admins to check plugin versions. -------> Major security fix for 1. 6.xxxxx
Point four is a major security fix for q2a 1.6.xx and a minor change for 1.7.xx
We can include the upgrade in PQA 1.1.x

I saw also history. In addition, I was also confirmed change in the program. However, I feel change is un-necessary.
