I'm picturing that you work for a software house, and that the "security

In that case, you may very well have users with *ALLOBJ authority who
are trying to bypass your security, so securing the object won't help you.

I agree that a *LIBL exploit is easier -- but not much easier.

Well, if you have *ALLOBJ authority, then most bets are off anyways.

There's always gonna be someone in each shop with *ALLOBJ authority, isn't there.
