FileMaker security

Hi everybody...

 

Stupid question here. I know in the past, before FMP 12, it was possible to use an application that would replace the admin user password. This allowed a person to access a database as an administrator, and make changes if the password was lost, or even worse, would allow an unauthorized user to make changes and lock out the true administrator.

 

I was under the impression that bug was fixed in FMP 12 and later.

 

I have looked at several of these apps, and they are not clear if they can access FMP 12 databases.

 

I have a database that is used in universities and in the past, I would eliminate administrative access through FileMaker development tools. Do I still need to do this>

 

Cheers!
