Abstract: Ensure that admin.ib is not accessible to users who are not granted root access
Specific issue: When InterBase is installed on Linux and Solaris, read write permission for admin.ib is enabled for all users.
Solution: Best security practices require the administrator to set permissions appropriately immediately after installation. The most secure posture is to set permission so that only 'root' user has read/write privileges.
Note to database administrators: Additional security is achieved when the Interbase directory and its subdirectories are owned by 'root' user and have the permissions set to 755.
