Well, I should clarify that we haven't made any determination yet whether
anyone (other than our security officer, of course) even has these
authorities, but like I mentioned earlier, we were trying to narrow our
search for the possibilities.

And an exact duplicate of QSECOFR also has *ALLOBJ authority, which is the
thing that makes it dangerous in the wrong hands, correct?

In response to Jim's post: This is good to know. I kinda feel better that no
one that is in the office today can even *get* to that menu, since this
leads me to the implication that our security officer has done things right.
But I guess we'll have to wait until Monday now to know for certain.

Thanks guys!
