What are the security implications of using dynamic workspaces?

Question asked by jon.morris on Nov 16, 2016

Our website has a requirement to show different sublayers of a DynamicMapServiceLayer with different levels of transparency. We've achieved this by enabling dynamic layers, but the help page suggests that access is restricted to only the layers necessary to display the map. What's the worst a user could do now we've opened up this folder?

 

The site is only available to authenticated users and the folder in question only contains OS shapefiles, not commercially-sensitive data.
