When I'm sharing files over my home network, if I want to access someone else's computer I input their username/pass and I have access to their Public fold and whatever shared folders they have.


When I do the same for my laptop, since my username and pass are the same, I automatically have access to my entire user folder, regardless of whether I want it shared or not!

Anybody else see this as a huge security risk? If you know the user/pass of someone else on the network and want to steal their private information without physically logging on to their computer, you can just create a completely unrelated account on your system using their user name and pass.

That's why nobody else knows my password, a string of random numbers/letters that I can remember by heart
