Can Windows users see you if you're using the same connection?
Thought about posting in the Networking board, but I believe this is a much more security-oriented thread.
So let's say I bring my computer to a public place, say a library with one open, public, shared wireless network. I connect to that network. Let's assume that everyone else who's connected is using Windows. Can they see my computer (through Network Manager or other software) and attack it (SYN flood or something)? Or does it depend on the network settings?
Thank you very much.
I support SOPA and I dare say it.
