I am able to view and access a SQL database other than my own while connected with Enterprise Manager, Query Analyzer, or the SQL Web admin. What is wrong?

This happens because the customer has added Guest Access/Public to their SQL database.  Please notify us if you see this problem. We will pass that information to the owner of the SQL database.

Attention: DO NOT add Guest User/Public to your SQL database, as this will allow all other users on your SQL server to see your database.
