Unauthorized users are able to add/remove Responsibilities of users in non-administration views. This occurs because of Mvg associated to non-admin views, which itself has another Mvg to the Responsibilities. Although the fields are read-only, the Responsibility Mvg is not. Once users are in the Responsibility Mvg, they are able to modify other users Responsibilities.

Only authorized users should be able to modify users responsibilities in administration screens. In this case, it should only be allowed in Administration - Users by Admin Users only.

It can be reproduced in the following views:
View: Activity List View
Applet: Activity List Applet With Navigation
Applet List Column: Employees
                MVG applet: Employee Mvg Applet
                MVG applet List Column: Responsibility
                               Second MVG Applet: Responsibility Mvg Applet
1. Navigate to the Activity List View.
2. In the Employee column, open up the Employee Mvg.
3. In the "Selected" section of the Mvg, navigate to the "Responsibility" column and open up the Mvg.
4. This brings up the Responsibility Mvg, where unauthorized users can make changes to other users profiles.

This causes security issues where unauthorized users can modify other users, including SADMIN's responsibilities.
