Hello everybody. I am staying at a hotel with free wifi and opened up my itunes library (iTunes 10). I am picking up another guests library under the shared section. I can see everything in their library but there's no import button or anything. Im not looking to jack their music I just want to make sure they cant jack mine. Should I be worried? Oh and I turned off my home share and I can still see their library.
QUOTE Thanks

System Preferences - Sharing - Uncheck all services.

Sys Pref - Security - turn on your Firewall while you're out and about on public networks.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

The iTunes Home Sharing features only streams music to others. If they wanted to "jack" your music, they'd have to stream the music and then run a program to record the music being played to a local file. This will be of lower quality and will also record any other sounds that the computer generates..

Regards
