Iis won't serve up global.asa to users, that said, you shouldn't store sensitive data in there either!

Subject: Global.asa security under IIS 6.0
Hi list !
I am wondering about how much secure is the "global.asa" file in ASP. It = seems that we can gather there most of the
parameters used with our ASP = pages, but it can be also a weakness if a malicious guy gets access to = it !
So anyone one knows how secure is it to use global.asa, how can we get = it from a website (IIS refuses access to it
with an = http://blahblahblah.com/global.asa)...and how can we avoid people = stealing if ?
Thanks in advance!
