Libraries accessed that had PUBLIC *EXCLUDE security settings

Dick wrote in with this question recently: I recently awarded a contract to a consulting firm to create a small HR system on my iSeries. A library was created to contain all the objects they needed to create the system and then deliver it. They connected to the iSeries from their office over the Internet using a VPN tunnel to a Windows server that was on the same network and from which they were able to log on to the iSeries. While development was taking place I was absent from the office for some time. During that time they needed other objects not in the library that was created for them. I was surprised to learn that they were able to access other libraries that had PUBLIC *EXCLUDE security settings even though their user profile was User Class *PGMR and no special authorities. How is this possible? -- Deb Tart, associate editor

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If PUBLIC was set to *EXCLUDE, they must be gaining access either through the owner of the library, through other private authorities that have access to that library or through an authorization list. The method of access should make no difference. Dont forget to check what group profile (and supplimental groups) their profile belongs to.
