::                                                                          ::
:: A friend of mine, Shaddow Skinhead, recently had to create an Access     ::
:: Database for his University and we played around quite a bit with the    ::
:: Security Issue, only to find that it is near to impossible to have a     ::
:: Secure Access Database. Here is a list of the three major security flaws ::
:: in the MS Access system...                                               ::
::                                                                          ::
:: 1) MS Access automatically creates a guest-guest logon which cannot be   ::
::    deleted. Note that although it cannot be deleted, it can have a       ::
::    password set for it.                                                  ::
::                                                                          ::
:: 2) You will find settings like "PasswordRequired" in the .ini files for  ::
::    Access. Create your own .ini file without these settings and then run ::
::    msaccess /ini myphile.ini - Look Mom! No Password!                    ::
::                                                                          ::
:: 3) If you can run WrkGrp.Exe you can specify new Security Settings :-)   ::
::                                                                          ::
:: Anybody else know of any wholes in MS-Access Security? If you do, mail   ::
:: me at wyze1@syrex.co.za                                                  ::
::                                                                          ::
