I have a security problem on the server I am setting up.

I have a number of different sites running in IIS 5.0 placed in different directories:

e:\home\aaa
e:\home\bbb

etc.

The problem is that the asp files running in site aaa (f:\home\aaa) can access the files and databases in f:\files\bbb using af fileSystemObject.


How can this be avoided?

A explanation of the security issues involved will be greatly appreciated.
