Currently any logged in user is allowed to extract the meta data for a
database. Also, any user is allowed to log in to any database even if they
cannot select any data from it. This isn't a good thing for ISPs who may
wish to use IB as a web DB (people could copy each other's database schemas).

I don't know how they have implemented it, but they probably did something
simple like in MSSQL where you cannot even log in to the database if you
don't have a single permission in that database.
