Thanks Dan for your attention ,i figured it out ,our previous sharepoint admin added authenticated users group to every site collection which allowed any user who has account on sharepoint to view other sitecollection

How do you have the sites setup? Are they seperate site collections under one web application or seperate site collections under seperate application pools?
