Bugzilla has to have a way to stop anyone random person to view the bugs, but I can't find it. This question is similar to How to prevent anonymous (users that are not logged in) BugZilla access? , but there is no answer to the question.

To elaborate further, as of right now, anyone can access my bugzilla server, and click on the Browse button to view any bugs we have listed. I've searched through all the administrative settings, and I can't find a way to disallow this. Surely it exists. Any help would be appreciated.

using Bugzilla 4-4.2

I have searched around a decent amount, and it appears that there is no setting that makes bugzilla's reported bugs private. I ended up going with Redmine instead since I wanted the server reachable from outside of our network, but didn't want just anyone to view the bugs.
