Hello Jerry.

SE16 is not in any of our enduser roles used in PRD. We do allow users SE17
to display tables.

Hello everyone,

I remember sometime ago that there was a discussion on whether se16
should be locked in the production server or not. I can't remember
the outcome but just recently I found out that anyone who has access
to se16 can actually trick SAP into allowing him/her to change the
records of a table. A very dangerous situation indeed. SE16 should
therefore be locked on the production server or make sure no has
access to this transaction.

Anyone interested on how the trick works? Or does everyone knows how
it works?

Best regards,
Jerry Escobia.
