IP Address Enough Info to Access my Desktop and Printers, etc?
Posted on 2001-06-14
I hear some hot shots talking about how they can hack into a desktop and any connected devices with just an IP address.
Is this really enough information?
I know to log onto an NT machine (in a workgroup type arrangement), you pretty much have to have a valid login.
What about machines running Me or W9x?
Should I be concerned about having a machine on the internet connected to a cable modem all the time? People can access my IP address easily enough whenever I access a Gnutella group.
