Gibsons Research Corp has some interesting information from Steve Gibson about the file sharing exposures of having Client for Microsoft Networks enabled and "bound" to TCP/IP, and explains how to disable this service for improved security in Win/95/98 systems, but nothing for later versions of Windows. Does this risk still exist in today's Win 10 systems?

Hi, mjyeo!

 

Sorry for the late reply, but anyway:

 

Yes, however by default, Windows 10 allows file and printer sharing only over a Private (ex: home or work) network. It is disabled when your network location is set to Public (ex: café or library).

 

Here is a tutorial on setting network location: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/6815-set-network-location-private-public-windows-10-a.html

 

Here is a tutorial on enabling/disabling file and printer sharing: https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/49753-turn-off-file-printer-sharing-windows-10-a.html
