what the...? Windows users have full access to sharepoint site!

Simple WSS 3.0 site, running in Windows domain.  Several domain users who have NOT been added as sharepoint users at all have access to the entire sharepoint site when they log in to it with their domain credentials.  I have no idea why this is happening.  Anonymous access is NOT enabled--for either the Web application, the top level site or any of the sub-sites.  This is weird.  HELP!

A few more hours of Googling and I found the answer myself: In SharePoint Central Admin, Application Management, *Policy for Web Application*, NTAUTHORITY\authenticated users had "Full Read" permissions for the Web Application in question.  Deleted that 'user' from the Policy, problem solved.  With all of the other places where permissions are set...unbelievable that it took so long to find any reference to this.  Ah, live and learn.  Here's the link that was key:
