I uploaded the file (.pdf) into the namespace esp.  when I click on upload 
file and select the name space the file is in the list of files.

from a different namespace I have a page with a link to the image using 
the {{}} syntax. 
a user that have none access to the esp namespace can click on the link in 
the different namespace and is able to open the image. 
he can not open any page in the second namespace.

I had hoped that security would limit this access.

Are you sure you have uploaded the image in the namespace that is
protected? Media files are organized in namespaces similar to pages,
only namespace ACLs are applied to media files. Media files are not
attached to pages, so it doesn't matter in which page the media files
was originally used.
