I have samba running on a Debian linux system. Its the latest release of
samba. I noticed that when I log in to a Windows system and I go to
net. neighborhood, i see the home dir for the user that I am logged in as.
I logged out and logged in with another user name. I still see the
previous users home dir. and also the current users home dir. I still have
read access to the previous home directory.
So I tried access any other valid home directory and I had no problem.
The scary part is that I tried \\samba_server\root and it worked. I can
access any users home dir in the /etc/passwd file. Im sure this isn't
wanted by most Samba Admins.
I thought I prevented this with invalid users option
What configuration option prevents this ??
I just read the using samba book about 3 times and couldn't find any way
to fix this problem.
