    Default Users and rights

    Hi all,

    I just created user X and user Y.
    Why is it that user X can access the home directory of user Y, and vice versa, and read and write to it?

    What am I missing here?
    I'm no linux expert, but i've never encountered this before.

    It does seem a bit odd, especially the ability to write in other users' home dirs. The reading part is not so odd though.
    What are the permissions on the directories and what program did you use to create the users?
