FileMaker may expose data inadvertently.
FileMaker Web Companion prior to version 5.0v4 permits unauthorized access to data even if the database manager believes that data is protected by Field Level Security.
Attackers can read information, including items such as passwords, stored in databases thought to be protected.
Upgrade to 5.0v4 or later as described in http://www.filemaker.com/support/webcompanion_archive.html#may9.
Our thanks to Erik C. Thauvin, of Blue World Communications, Inc., who reported this problem to us.
