Hi All,

For FB Embed, all it needs is user_id to login. Password is ignored, this makes FB embed even more un-secure.

Hi Martijn,

we met at the firebird conference in Fulda, I was the one who won a
licence for DB Workbench, thanks a lot it is helping very much to
get into it. Unthinkable to work without it!

You said that unless you don't have the SYSDBA password you can't
have access to the data. But what about copying the database file to
another machine, connecting as any database user in DB Workbench and
do "Exract DDL" including grants? Then you can see the name of the
authorized user in that database. You then can create such a user on
the machine and - there you go!

Is that scenario I described possible?

With regards
