Certain parts (Potentially the entire save) of other users game saves can be accessed. For now only the location of icons is known, although this may change as cloud saving is further documented and researched. There is no indication that the actual saves are stored or protected any differently than the icons, although further testing may prove otherwise. Other users may be able to access your cloud saves or data,and at the moment can access icons among some other things,provided they can correctly determine the location of your save.

US Cloud Saves Stored At: http://ubstorage01.ww.np.community.playstation.net/ubs/icon/as/psn-ubs-us/us/USERNAME/PS4/SAVEDATA/GameID-save/FileID_USERSPECIFICCODE_icon.png

The USERSPECIFICCODE is the same for every save the user has on the account. It's 32 digits. Based on analysis of multiple users saves, there is no noticeable patterns or formatting within these digits. Its not currently known if its completely randomly generated, or if it has any relation to username, region, ect. If you knew someones psn ID and could calculate these 32 digits, you could conceivably access there saves and cloud data, although accessing icons and configs is the only things that has currently been demonstrated and proven.
