    Access Control

    Hi I have a query with regards to an accesss control:

    There are two scripts A and B. When A executes it calls B.

    The permission listing for A is as follows
    -rwxr--r-- 1 root users 4364 Oct 2 2008 A.ksh

    The permission listing for B is as follows
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root users 4364 Oct 2 2008 B.ksh

    My attempt is to prevent everyone from accessing B. Will the above permission restrict everyone since everyone does not have access to A and since A calls B and B cannot run by itself.

    However it appears from above that everybody can execute B. If I have to remove "x" such than anyone does not have access to script B then can I do so without affecting script A?

    Setup B to be the same as A.
