A warning about SMB sharing and file security
Authored by: mbanks on Jan 21, '04 05:44:02PM

Just to add my tally mark here:

I noticed this a while ago (a month maybe?) while setting up SMB so my wife could save things from her WinME laptop to our G4 (if you've ever used WinME - you know why). When I finally figured out how to get it working, I was able to not only see and edit all her stuff, I could see and edit all MY stuff which I couldn't do from an APF or ftp connection (or while logged on to the console or if I was ssh'd into the machine.)

I've gotta believe that something is jacked in their SMB implementation. Now, admittedly, we're both admins of the machine, but the other protocols respect the permissions.

FWIW, this is an upgraded machine.

10.2 clean install --> usual 10.2.x updates from SW updates --> upgrade to 10.3 beta --> upgrade to 10.3 GM

I have no idea if that affects anything.
