I accidently shared my public folders with guests.  Unfortunately I didn't find this out til after i went to a public WIFI hotspot.  Are there any logs to see if someone connected to my shares?  Is this information recorded in fseventid or somewhere else?

Probably no big deal but i just want to check for peace of mind.  Searched the internet and can't find anything.

    Well you can check the last activity with the last command.
    It will view the output of the /var/log/wtemp.

    But there isn't a way of telling you if someone connected to your shares. But probably nobody has gotten anything. They'll still need to 'authenicate' with your mac to 'steal' something.
