I just moved into a communal office and one the utilities offered a free web access via a shared network. Aside from being blindly trusting or constantly paranoid what active steps can I take to determine my shared network security? Just like I might check the doors of the building are locked and windows are closed to prevent the theft of my tangible office goods.
It's small hardwired office network. I'm running on Macbook Pro with OS version 10.6.8 I have my firewall enabled and no shared folders.
Mostly I just imagine someone could watch network traffic and gather bank account, email or other information.
