Dear everyone

 

1.
Are those default shared folders in Windows? (The attached screenshot in the thread)

2.
Can those folders be compromised, infected etc. like regular shared folders? (The folders on the screenshot)

3.
File and Printer sharing is only available, when Network Discovery is turned ON?

4.
When Network Discovery is turned OFF, are the Default folders presented in the Command Prompt screenshot still accessable on the network?

5.
When Network Discovery is turned OFF, is it then impossible for a "hacker", who has access to my / is withtin my network, to see and locate my PC system?

6.
If a "hacker" has access to my network via Wi-fi password or cable, the person would still have to know my Windows user password, to be able to access my system?

7.
If a "hacker" don't have access to my network, the person would still have to know my Windows user password, to be able to access my system external / through the internet?

Thanks in advance for replies

Best regards
