Every SQL Server login belongs to the public server role. When a server principal has not been granted or denied specific permissions on a securable object, the user inherits the permissions granted to public on that object. Only assign public permissions on any object when you want the object to be available to all users.
The public server role is granted VIEW ANY DATABASE permission and the CONNECT permission on the default endpoints (TSQL Local Machine, TSQL Named Pipes, TSQL Default TCP, TSQL Default VIA).
