Yes, it was public before.

Have you tried this, and does it solve your problems?

JCC is spot on when he points to workflow as being the basis of security
in Plone - it's also worth saying that the Zope system and the Plone
system are pretty much at odds with one another. You are more likely to
make mistakes at the Zope level than to do what you intend.

(If you try the "howto", don't overlook that last step - hitting the
"update security settings" button. Managed to overlook this myself
recently (despite it being the umpteenth time I've followed this howto),
and spent hours thinking that something more exotic was going on!)

Let us know how you get on...
