I find that there are lots of tables granted to PUBLIC in SQL Server 2000 when I run the EXEC sp_helprotect
Is this the default setting?
If granted to public is that mean everyone can access it?
Any table should NOT grant to public?
anyone can help?

thank you! I have read it, but... still don't understand...
I have to check my client's SQL Server to see if grant everything to public is it valid?

No, not necessarily.  Users are automatically added to the public role by default, when the logins are enabled at the database.  This role provides the permissions any new user has in the database.  Every login is a member of public, and inherits the public role privileges.

But -- by default, the role has only the very basic connection permissions.  Unless somebody has revoked or granted explicitly, I don't think you have anything to worry about.

and you can take a look at this to see your public role privileges:


SELECT a.[name] + ' ' + v.[name] + ' ON ' + QuoteName(oo.[name])
+ '.' + QuoteName(o.[name]) + ' TO ' + QuoteName(u.[name])
   FROM dbo.sysprotects AS p
   JOIN master.dbo.spt_values AS a
      ON (a.number = p.protecttype
      AND 'T' = a.type)
   JOIN master.dbo.spt_values AS v
      ON (v.number = p.action
      AND 'T' = v.type)
   JOIN dbo.sysobjects AS o
      ON (o.id = p.id)
   JOIN dbo.sysusers AS oo
      ON (oo.uid = o.uid)
   JOIN dbo.sysusers AS u
      ON (u.uid = p.uid)
   WHERE  'public' = u.name
