Summary12583: Users not allowed to edit data sets can edit data
DescriptionIf I create a Limesurvey admin user who is only allowed to view and enter data sets for a certain survey (see attached screenshot for settings), there is still a way to edit a data set by viewing the data sets and clicking the "Edit this data set" button on the new screen.
Steps To Reproduce1. Create a Limesurvey user.
2. For any test survey assign the user only the rights to view and enter data sets.
3. Log in with the new user, go to the response overview and click the icon to view a certain data set.
4. At the "View data set" screen there is a button on top "Edit this data set".
5. When clicking that button you can change existing data and save even though you do not have the proper user rights.
TagsNo tags attached.

@LouisGac: I had already shown the issue to Carsten on Skype and he asked to create this ticket and assign it to you.
Let me know if you need any further details.

Unable to reproduce it completely, probably it is fixed already.
I'm able to follow your steps and click on "Edit this entry", but it shows only the blank screen when clicked on.
So, the user really can't change any response.

"Edit this entry" button is now hidden for users who don't have update response permission.
