Zope's security model, by design, allows objects to be published even if
the container cannot be; therefore you need to ensure that the object
itself does not become viewable by anonymous.
You likely need to modify the "Security" tab on the "published" state in
your workflow to prevent granting "View" permission to "Anonymous". You
probably want it to have the "Acquire?" flag turned on, instead.
