Those GoldMine geeks amongst us have known about this security hole for years: the SQL Query tool in GoldMine. Thankfully, it only works with SELECT statements. That being said, there was nothing stopping a disgruntled salesman from “SELECTing * from CONTACT1” and walking away with your client list.

Until now. You can disable SQL Querying at the database alias level.

Go to Tools | Databases | Alias Manager | Edit Alias

Uncheck “Enable SQL Queries” and Ok your way out.

All users will need to restart their GoldMine to get the change.
