Users are able to access content that is shared in a chatter group but not in a library

Knowledge Article Number 000212275
Description Administrators who share content/files via libraries to a private chatter group make it accessible to those users. The base permissions in the content from the admin extend to the private chatter group.
Resolution If the administrator of the Library shares the file to a private Chatter group, then the file should be viewable (but not editable/versionable) by members of the Chatter group, assuming that the admin gave the Chatter group "viewer" rather than "collaborator" rights. Please note these users are not part of the library where the content originates from.
