Sure! Just like someone else can access your credit history, etc. -- all
they need to know is your full name, social security number, etc.
Hence the reason that the capability is so "wide" -- unless it is
disclosed to you (by the process or it's parent -- or some other
entity "in the know"), you theoretically have to *guess* what it
is. That could take you a *very* long time (depending on
your guessing strategy and the actual value of the capability).
Note that other OS's treat the capability as a true token, held
by the OS on your behalf. So, "guessing numbers" will *never*
allow you to gain access to the resource -- the token isn't
"just a number".
