As discussed with RoanKattouw on irc, here is the bug report :
We have discovered a crucial bug : the "recent change" page show all the modification about our pages to all users (anonymous too), even critical pages protected by NamespacePermission.
Tested on mediawiki 1.6.8 and 1.11.2.
You can contact me on irc, I'm on the mediawiki chan 24h/24 by the alias Slashman if you need more details.
Per page read restrictions are not at all supported. That's generally thrown in all the documentation too.
[[mw:Extension:NamespacePermissions]] is not an officially-maintained extension, so this is the wrong place. Talk to its author, Petr Andreev, or post at [[mw:Extension talk:NamespacePermissions]].
Also see the GIANT RED WARNING on the top of that page:
"If you need per-page or partial page access restrictions, you are advised to install an appropriate content management package. MediaWiki was not written to provide per-page access restrictions, and almost all hacks or patches promising to add them will likely have flaws somewhere, which could lead to exposure of confidential data. We are not responsible for anything being leaked, leading to loss of funds or one's job.
For further details, see [[mw:Security issues with authorization extensions]]"
