Guest Access

From the website:
"On every Mac guest access of personal file sharing is on by default, and there is no easy way to turn it off. This can be a security risk, because everyone in your network can copy files to the 'Drop Box' or read files from your Public folder. Sure, you can turn sharing off or change the permissions, but it's more effective if you turn guest access off and with this application you can just do this very easy."

In 10.5 you can turn it off easily in system preferences.

- Go to Accounts.
- Select the Guest account
- Untick the box that says "Allow guests to connect to shared folders"

Done.
