Sysvol, Netlogon folders

Last Modified: 2015-02-27
Hi there,
Running windows server 2008 R2 domain.  Any user can type \\servername\ and gets visible sysvol, Netlogon folders, though they cannot change anything but I need to make myself sure if it is even safe for the domain controller to show these folders openly?
How can I make them more secure so that only domain admins would be able to see these folders?  Help plz.
Under permissions I found everyone given read permissions.  Is it default?
