Subject Re: [firebird-support] Bingo! No real security there.
Author Andre Dostal
Hi there,
it wasn't me, who stated "Bingo! No real security here". I guess Johan
didn't delete my Name in one of my Answers. Security in heterogene
networks goes way much too wide for this support list.
In my opinion, if someone wants to distribute a programme, which handles
confident data, he/she has to catch an expert for that part of the solution.

Sincerly your
amateur security expert and amateur firebird fan
