Rubber Boots in front supposed to be open?

I changed my brake pads today and noticed the rubber boots inside of the front wheel are completely exposed and cut all the way around. There is plenty of grease inside, but I do not think it is safe/right for the boots to be open like they are. Correct me if wrong.

Get them replaced soon! Once all the grease leaks out, or water gets in, you'll be needing to replace the entire CV assembly. This is a lot more expensive than just the boots. The boots are usually around $15 each, while the CV joints are around $200 each, maybe more.
