    Well it depends, if your computer is not secure with a firewall and it is connected to any type of network there are very different ways of accessing your files. Maybe you have ur files shared for all the network and you don't know it, maybe you are infected by a trojan horse that will let any person with your ip access everything and control ur computer.. Don't be afraid getting a small firewall software would solve it all.. Go for norton or Zone alarm..

    Laptop should be precautiously taken, computer vandals will be able to tap into these laptops by using wireless transmitters.

    Indeed, hardly anyone had heard of WiFi wireless networking in 2000. Today, half of all new laptops come with WiFi capability built in. A WiFi-equipped computer can share digital data by communicating with a wireless ''access point." Standard WiFi equipment has a range of about 150 feet, but that range can be substantially increased with high-powered equipment and a special antenna.

    Many visitors who'll plug into the network will have computers with built-in WiFi capability. The WiFi feature is automatically switched on when the computer is running. In effect, the laptop can connect to a wired and a wireless network at the same time.

    If these laptops haven't been protected with the latest security patches, a skilled intruder will be able to gain access to the laptop. He could then leapfrog onto the Democrats' network, allowing him to steal information or vandalize computers. 'By being on both networks at the same time.

    If you were using some sort of file sharing program (like limewire) and you have the files (or folder where those files are stored) shared on limewire then anyone could grab them.
