Product and version:  FileMaker Pro 16 Advanced (

OS and version:  Mac OS 10.13.1

Browser and version (for WebDirect only):  n/a

Hardware:  iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, Late 2015)

Description:  When a user is assigned to a Privilege Set with a Value List's Security set to "All view only", the user is able to alter the Value List when "Edit..." is enabled in the UI.  This is a security issue.

How to replicate:  Create a database with a field in the UI; assign a static Value List; enable the field's value list to "Edit..."; add a user to Security & assign them to the "[Data Entry Only]" Privilege Set (i.e. which has the Value List "All view only" setting); login as this user & attempt to change the static value list.

Workaround (if any):  (none)
