Isn't it a security risk to give full permission to the world on a joomla folder.
Somebody says anyone could thus "upload something to your folders via joomla forms".
On your opinion, is this an issue we should pay attention to?

Yes, if you have other shell users and don't use PHP Safe Mode.
The other solution would be to run
chown web49_1:web49 com_joomlaxplorer
, but then Apache can't upload into that directory anymore...
